The Hope Project is seeking to bring an awareness of Christ back to the public during Easter and Christmas in Aotearoa-New Zealand. The plan is to eventually have THREE annual media efforts that give profile to Christ and the continuing presence, work and message of his people across our nation:
(i) Hope Project Easter – putting Christ back into Easter from 2018 onwards
(ii) Hope Project Christmas – putting Christ back into Christmas from 2019 onwards
(iii) Hope Project Family – highlighting what Kiwi churches are doing for families from 2020 onwards.
This kind of national voice can only exist if the Kiwi Church unites to enable it. Partnership is requested.
The significance of these three media efforts?
A conversation is in process in our natoin about the place of Christianity within our nation. Is Christianity an imposition of colonisation? The public generally think it is, when history tells a different story. Is this a Christian nation – as measured by heritage and values? The public have been led to believe not, when a fair study, according to those measures, reveals that we are. Public sentiment toward the Christian faith could be changed.
There is no ‘subscription’ fee, though donations are requested.
RECEPTIVITY: New Zealanders have warmed to these projects. Engagement levels are high and surprisingly positive (not negative). You will find a blue report on a recent effort in the right-hand column of this webpage.
