Help us bring the message of HOPE through the Easter message of Jesus to our nation this year and beyond!

Main image

Many have noticed that public media becoming increasingly silent about the true meanings behind Christmas and Easter. Awareness is increasing that our nation’s churches may need to somehow work together to create this visible presence for the Christian faith themselves.

This year we continue the Hope Project- a simple, known and already-tested solution that returns the presence of Jesus and the Easter message at Easter publicly, and we need your help!

The focus of the Hope Project 2018


Stories that reveal how the Christian faith gave us many of our most treasured values as a nation.


We will continue to communicate an aspect of Christian belief or thinking that is relevant to the stories, as well as the core Christian message of God’s love shown through Christ.


New Zealanders have warmed to these projects. People are loving learning about our nation’s history while hearing uplifting stories of hope and faith.
