Neighbours Day Aotearoa is a great way to stage events and celebrations that bring together your neighbours, and forge relationships with those who need to know the love of God in their lives.
The Neighbours Day concept was birthed in Auckland by a passionate community advocate, with the support of a local church and an organisation called Lifewise. Now in its tenth year, it has attracted a nationwide following as well as support from Inspiring Communities and the Mental Health Foundation, and aims to build a sense of belonging for those who feel isolated.
There are heaps of resources and ideas on the Neighbours Day website, especially for groups. Check out the website here, and let us know if you or your church community launch an initiative in celebration of Neighbours Day.
