NZ History

Watch 

Te Rongopai, a 65-minute DVD by New Zealand historian the Rev Dr Stuart Lange, which tells the story of the gospel in Aotearoa New Zealand, from its beginnings in 1814 when Samuel Marsden preached at Oihi and then the spread of Christianity and the way Christian faith has played a significant role in shaping New Zealand society both then and now. As Dr Lange says, “No nation can truly be understood without reflecting on its spiritual values and history.” You can purchase the DVD  for $25, but first check to see if your church has a copy, or share the cost with others in your church.
