From cake stalls to quiz nights, from car boot sales to stamp cleaning, congregations across the LCA/NZ have raised millions of dollars for their communities. What a blessing fundraising can be, as awareness is raised for a cause, funds are generated for a community project and people come together to improve the lot of others.

The new New and Renewing Churches website features a fundraising toolkit, so please check it out. Perhaps your congregation will accept the challenge to raise funds so that the gospel can be shared across Australia and New Zealand through our church plants and sending churches.

Elsewhere on the website, we invite you to take a look at what else the New and Renewing Churches department of LCA/NZ Local Mission can offer your congregation. For example, you can browse our ‘store’ and see what Renew Mission Life is all about. May God bless your participation in the Spirit’s work a hundred-fold!
