Tuesday 11th August saw Christian leaders from Auckland and beyond attend the event ‘Christian Women Connecting for Global Impact’ at AUT. They met to share their stories and hear from Amanda Jackson about the experiences of women around the world. In her role as Executive Director of the Womens Commission, World Evangelical Alliance, Amanda sees firsthand the challenges faced by women across many nations as they seek to understand and live out their lives as women of faith.
The evening was also the launch of Women as One, the NZ and South Pacific Women’s Commission, recently established under the umbrella of the NZCN. The Commission has a vision to provide a platform to Connect, Equip and provide an opportunity to hear the Voices of Christian Women in New Zealand and the South Pacific.
Leaders Janet Tuck and Rachel Afeaki-Taumoepeau shared their hopes and aspirations for the Commission. They see a real opportunity to connect Christian women across New Zealand and the Pacific region from different denominations and ethnic backgrounds.
Attendees shared their stories in relation to four key words: Leadership, Opportunity, Woman and Church. The journey has been hard for some, with the stories quite ‘gritty’ and honest. However the evening was one of real warmth and connection. There was a lot of laughter, and some new friendships established. The few brave men who attended were provided with women’s wigs in order to ‘blend in’ more easily. Glyn Carpenter sporting a long white wig almost looked the part!
Feedback from the night has been very positive, with several telling of a sense of God calling them to be there, and a real excitement about what might come next.

A warm summers afternoon, sitting with a bunch of mates at the Music Box (a stage on the back of a truck) sipping on freshly squeezed OJ, listening to Strahan woo you with his silky tones. Imagine lining up with a plate, a knife and a fork, the smell of Argentinian style BBQ wafting past your nose, when a heap of fresh produce is lumped onto your plate, followed up by a nice thick cut of export quality beef. Imagine sitting in the One Arena surrounded by thousands of people, listening to some of the best theologians the...
