Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name,
make known among the nations what He has done.

Missions at Home

The Reformed Churches of New Zealand are committed to the spread of the gospel through the work of local evangelism and church planting. In order to help facilitate gospel outreach, our Synod has established two committees; the Home Missions Committee and Church Extension Committee.

The task of the Home Missions Committee is to evaluate evangelism resources, investigate means of spreading the gospel, facilitate the sharing of information and resources and encourage churches in their task of local evangelism. Many of our local churches are actively involved in regular outreach programs such as religious education in State schools, Prison Fellowship, playgroups and children’s holiday programs.

The Church Extension Committee is the body authorised by Synod to provide financial assistance where necessary for those churches engaged in home missions and church planting. Within the last 10 years 3 new congregations were established and instituted. Oamaru in 2013, Whanganui in 2016 and Rangiora in 2017.
