That is what we’re about. Gospel renewal in people and places in all corners of the world. Arotahi primarily work in the continent of Asia, partnering with businesses and organisations who are daily bringing renewal to their local neighbourhoods. These include Joyya, The Loyal Workshop, and Woven Life Foundation, as well as student hostels around South Asia.

Arotahi work is based on these four values: a humble posture, respectful relationships, wholistic practice, and whakarongo (to listen). They seek these values in every partnership and work they are involved in.

NZBMS has been working globally for 135 years now with incredible support from many generous and sacrificial Kiwis. When you’ve been around for this many years, you learn a thing or two. They are proud to say they’re still learning and growing as an organisation, and are consistently striving to seek God’s quiet voice in whatever context they find themselves in.

Renew Together:
Renew Together (formerly Prayer and Self Denial) is an opportunity for our faith community to engage with Arotahi, and the amazing global work that is happening right now!


This appeal is an opportunity for our church to engage with stories from the global people and communities involved with Arotahi! They ask that we get involved and excited by the work Christ is doing through the team of global workers by praying and supporting their work. During these weeks, we will be sharing videos from these global locations and diving into the Word together, looking at every person’s role in the Missio Dei.
This year Oxford Terrace will participate in Renew Together during July (more details to come).

Every person has a role in God’s work. Just as we are hands and feet in the local church, so too are we in the global whānau. This appeal asks you to be bold and take risks for the Kingdom of God.
