The Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership forms ministers and leaders for service in the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand and partner churches.

We work in partnership with a variety of groups and networks, including Te Aka Puaho, the Pacific Island Synod, the Council of Asian Congregations, Presbyteries, United District Councils, and congregations.

In addition to training people for National Ordained Ministry, the Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership also provides training for Local Ordained MinistersLocal Ministry Teams and other recognised ministries in the Church. We support presbyteries and congregations in their leadership development, and help resource continuing ministry formation among the Presbyterian Church’s ministers and elders.

The 2019 Lent-inars

Think deeply, wholistically, carefully about faith in life. With Lent-inar 2019, join the Snapshots in Mission 2018 authors online. Discuss mission and ministry in Aotearoa. Be blessed by poetry and song.  Hosted by Lisa Well, Press Go catalyst and interviewed via online video conferencing.  What sparked their writing? What piece of music speaks to their article? What are the implications, for church, ministry and mission?  There will be time for Q and A, using video conferencing technology.

Attend one. Attend them all. Access the recording at a later date if time does not suit. Learn how to access by emailing registrar@knoxcentre.ac.nz
