Our mission: To help encourage and support city wide unity throughout New Zealand.
Background: In the latter part of the 1990’s pastors in a number of N.Z. cities/towns gathered for 3 days of worship and prayer. These events known as Pastor’s Prayer Summits were largely a response to Jesus’ prayer for unity in John 17:21-23. They helped leaders to identify with the larger Body of Christ in their locality and the city or town to which they belonged. Subsequent to these prayer summits Roundtable Gatherings were held in different parts of N.Z. to encourage and support leaders of pastor’s town or city networks.
In 2010 a small group of leaders, all of whom were leading city-wide networks gathered to pray and seek ways of encouraging others on a similar journey. CitybyCity became the logo under which this support, encouragement initiative would continue. The inspiration for this logo came from – Zechariah 8:21 “The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying “let us continue to go and pray before the Lord, and seek the Lord of hosts. I myself will go also”.
Primary focus: To help encourage all sectors of the Body of Christ to focus on what they have in common rather than the things that too often divide, and to keep all things Christ centered. All that Christ be made known and glorified through His Body, the church in every city and town. All with unconditional love, cross centred fellowship, faith and perseverance.
