Greetings in the name of Christ

You may have received through the post or by hand a copy of the invitation to the 6th New Zealand Christian Leaders Congress, or you may have seen details in v-Zine. If we haven't caught up with you yet, please accept this as your invitation.

Congress is from 21–24 February 2011 (Mon 4.00 pm to Thurs 1.00 pm) at El Rancho, Waikanae, near Wellington.

Below is our first Congress update. Please read it as it contains important information.

Congress is the only gathering of its kind in New Zealand and takes place every three years, providing a unique opportunity to build vision and relationships across the broad spectrum of leadership in the Church. The theme for this Congress is 2020 Vision – The Gospel in the Decade Ahead. Our hope is that through this time of information sharing, relationship building and prayer, the Church will move closer to the unity which Jesus prayed for and be more effective in its mission in New Zealand and beyond.

Between now and then we will be sending out updates with important information about registration and the programme.

If you know of other Christian leaders who should be invited to Congress, please let them know and encourage them to attend. There is no other event such as this for leaders to connect across such a wide forum.

We look forward to being together and to encouraging each other so that the whole Church will take the whole Gospel to the whole of this country and beyond in the decade ahead.
