SIGNS Magazine Launch 2018

16 August 2018

On Sabbath August 25, every local Adventist church in Australia and New Zealand will receive a free batch of new-look Signs of the Times magazines. We want to encourage our members to rethink their perceptions of Signs and to plan how they might use our Church’s flagship evangelistic magazine to reach their communities for Jesus.

As part of our re-launch campaign we’re encouraging as many churches as possible to download and play our specially prepared 4-minute video during their Sabbath service. The video can also be shared via social media.

The Signs magazine re-launch video can be viewed and downloaded from https://vimeo.com/282456274/373d9a6f56.

Conference Office Hours – Important Notice

12 June 2018

Dear Friends in Christ

We live in a world that increasingly reminds us that time is very short.  As you will be aware most of our office staff are part-time, which can mean that sometimes there is only one person in the office.  Recently there was a workman who came to the office that made the one lady in the office feel very uncomfortable.  We shared this concern with EXCOM and it was voted to extend our office hours Monday to Thursday but close on Friday.  While the team will be working longer on those days, their availability will remain the same, i.e. the office will open at 9:00 am and close at 5:00 pm.   Thank you for your understanding.

Also, can I please request that people planning to come to the office to phone first and make an appointment.  Because our role is people focussed there are times when we are not here and if we have only one lady in the office, it will be closed for her protection.

– Paul Devine, General Secretary, South New Zealand Conference

Pray for Five, Disciple One!

5 June 2018

The last command Jesus gave us while he walked on this earth was to go and make disciples of all nations, baptising and teaching them. This command was supported by the promise that He will always be with us, even to the end of the age (Matt 28:18-20).

To help us take up this challenge in a meaningful and manageable way, we are starting a Conference-wide initiative to pray for five people and to disciple one person. Each local church has been provided with cards and flyers to equip us to do this. Pastors will also be regularly checking in and initiating corporate prayer time for all the names on our cards.

It is our prayer that this initiative will continue to grow God’s ability to use our Church to bless our communities. Let us pray for even more wisdom and strength as we actively look for ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus. May we be about our Father’s business, loving and caring for those around us, and drawing them irresistibly to Jesus.

-Yavanna Boulton, Evangelism Coordinator, South New Zealand Conference
