Young Adults: Thinking of moving in 2020 to Work or Study?

1 November 2019 | New Zealand Pacific Union Conference

This time of the year is an important time for young adults as they wrap up their academic year and consider plans for next year. Heading away from home for the first time to work or study can be a tough time.  But we have a growing number of Adventist churches all across NZ who are ready and waiting to be a home-away-from-home for tertiary students and young professionals.  The churches in this Network are committed to ensuring young people are supported, nurtured and equipped for this major chapter of their lives.

Young adults, parents, teachers, pastors, and youth leaders are able to make contact with a church in a centre where a young person is thinking of going.  No young person ever need leave home and be left alone and unsupported.

We want every young adult to know: wherever you go, you are cared for and have a home.

An important message from Adventist Health Ministries (measles)

27 September 2019 - New Zealand Pacific Union Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church

We recommend that all Ministry Leaders, especially Children Ministries and Pathfinder Leaders make themselves familiar with the following information regarding the Measles outbreak in New Zealand, particularly in the Auckland region at this time.

We also recommend that all Children’s Ministries make every effort to ensure an hygienic environment is maintained at all times. This can be done through encouraging regular handwashing, minimising the sharing of any toys/resources, and disinfecting all areas, toys, and equipment after or in-between use.

We also encourage parents not to take their children to church if they appear unwell, and to seek medical advice immediately if they suspect their child has been in contact with someone diagnosed with measles and is displaying any of the symptoms below.

As always, we advocate that all parents ensure that their children are up-to-date with all their vaccinations, as per the Department of Health Guidelines.
