Social Transformation | August 9: Wednesday 7-9pm
- Simon Cayley, CEO of the Bishop's Action Foundation
“Not all of us can do great things, but we can all do small things with great love” (Mother Teresa)
Social transformation sounds daunting and something to be tackled by global experts, but it is not. At the heart of social transformation is justice and the heart of justice is nothing more technically complicated than compassion. As a Church our challenge is not only to give to God what is due to Him, but to respond to God’s great gift of life and aroha to us by making ourselves a loving gift to others. This session will look at social transformation through this lens using practical examples as a point of reference.
Refugee Resettlement | August 16: Wednesday 7-9 pm
- Jen Richardson, Red Cross (Waikato) Humanitarian Services Manager
Refugee resettlement globally and specifically in Aotearoa is one of our society’s hottest topics at present. Over the past few years and months, Kiwis have been debating whether or not as a nation we should be accepting more refugees and whether or not we have a responsibility to do more. This presentation will look at sharing some of the great work that is being done currently to support former refugees in the Waikato region and include some of the opportunities and challenges that face former refugees who resettle in our community. This session will also cover the humanitarian work and activities that New Zealand Red Cross is involved in locally including efforts to support residents of Edgecumbe through their recent flooding emergency.
Jen Richardson is the NZ Red Cross Humanitarian Services Manager for the Waikato Bay of Plenty and as part of her role oversees all refugee, community resilience and disaster recovery programmes within the region. Jen has a strong background in youth development and community programmes with long experience in the non profit sector across various agencies.

|To support the life of EfM groups and provide for the possibility of new groups forming, we need mentors who are trained in the necessary skills to facilitate co-learning groups.|
|A mentor is not an expert, or a tutor, but a co-learner with group members who has the added group skills to ensure that a safe, honest, non-judgmental learning environment is fostered.|
|If you think that you might have what it takes to be a mentor, and/or are interested in in stepping into the adventure that is EfM, please contact either the Executive Officer or an EfM Trainer:|
TIME: Commencing Friday evening October 13 and concluding Sunday afternoon October 15
MEETING: Holy Trinity, Stratford (Corner of Regan St and Juliet St)
Synods in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia were the first in the Anglican world to enable Bishops to call the House of Clergy and representatives of the House of Laity together to assist them in the governance of the Church. Bishop Selwyn, the architect of the Constitution of the Church in these islands, was determined that Bishops should not have to govern alone. As he famously said; “It remains then to define by some simple principle the terms of our co-operation. They are simply these; that neither will I act without you, nor can you act without me”.
Synod 2017 documents will be made available when possible and no later than 15th September 2017..
