    Web: www.nzcms.org.nz/

    Description of Organisation:

    The New Zealand Church Missionary Society grew out of the work of the Church Missionary Society which began its ministry amongst Mario in Aotearoa-New Zealand in 1814. The NZ Church Missionary Association (1892) and later NZCMS (1916) moved the focus from mission in New Zealand to overseas. In 2000 NZCMS merged with the South American Missionary Society NZ. NZCMS works in co-operation with the New Zealand Board of Missions, the latter providing a significant part of the funding for mission partners.

    Programmes & Events:

    The primary purpose of the Society is to send long-term mission partners overseas and where possible to work in partnership with the local church. In some cases mission partners are seconded to specialist agencies such a Wycliffe/SIL or are serving in a tent-making role. There is a growing number of short-termers. The majority of the latter spend two years overseas and at the completion of a term some apply to become full mission partners of the Society. The Society also has associate mission partners, that is those whose primary allegiance is with another agency but wish to keep a connection with NZCMS and the Anglican Church in New Zealand. The Society allocates 5% of its overseas budget to the support of nationals both as students and as teachers in Bible schools. At present it supports seven students and one teaching position.

    Area of work:  East Africa, Middle East and North Africa, South Asia (Indian Subcontinent), South America, Europe.
