---Welcome to the Alliance in Aotearoa

We are part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, an international movement of Great Commission Churches serving in 90 countries with more than 6 million members. Being part of the worldwide Alliance family connects us to amazing people, resources and ministry opportunities.
In New Zealand, we’re a small but passionate group of people committed to establishing and building healthy churches which will reach our own nation, and support what God is doing through the Alliance overseas.
Our churches serve a range of cultures with a variety of ministry styles and we enjoy the blessing of a unity in the midst of our diversity. 
We aspire to be a Christ-Centred, Bible Believing, Spirit Filled, Missional Movement of Local Churches and we welcome you to join us on the journey.

The Marsden Cross at Oihi Bay in Northland commemorates the site of the first Christian service held in New Zealand by Rev Samuel Marsden on 25th December, 1814,


---Welcome from the National Director

Thanks for taking time to visit our website and find out more about us. I’d love the opportunity to talk with you more about the Alliance and how you can be part of our family here in New Zealand. This movement has played a huge role in my life helping me come to faith in Christ and then providing the training and opportunities to help me grow as a Christian. I’m committed to helping the Alliance continue being a movement which invites people into relationship with Jesus and equips them to be strong and healthy Christians.
