Hope Project Easter 2020 – what’s different?

Hope Project 2019 outcomes: This project achieved fantastic levels of public engagement again. A report is in the right hand column of this webpage.

2020 theme: The wider 2020 theme is the origins of healthcare,  again revealing how significantly our national values have come from the Christian faith within our history. (See new booklet online here)

2020 change: The delivery of booklets will now be done by volunteers in all cities and towns of 5000 or more people. Could you help with the delivery please?

Hope Project – the big idea

The Hope Project is seeking to bring an awareness of Christ back to the public square. The plan is to have THREE annual media efforts that represent the wider Christian community.

(i) Hope Project Easter – putting Christ back into Easter  

(ii) Hope Project Christmas – putting Christ back into Christmas (from 2019 onwards)

(iii) Hope Project Family – highlighting what Kiwi churches are doing for families (date of first effort yet to be determined).

Affirming the significance of the Christian influences that have defined many of our nation’s most-treasured values, and which also helped establish Te Tiriti o Waitangi, is a priority to us.
