Anglo-Catholic Hui in Dunedin attracts Wellington clergy

Rt Rev Dr Steven Benford, the Bishop of the Dunedin, has extended an invitation to all Anglicans (young or old, lay or ordained) to attend a hui on the ministry and mission of the church from an Anglo-Catholic perspective, and Rev Canon Simon Winn and Rev John McCaul from our cathedral will be among the attendees.

The hui aims to inspire those from the catholic tradition of Anglicanism to be a positive force for the Gospel and a model for effective mission in Aotearoa New Zealand today.  The programme will include presentations on: sacraments, mission, the Holy Spirit, Church growth, work with children & youth, spirituality.

All are welcome to gather in Dunedin to worship, socialise, encourage each other, learn from each other, challenge each other and have a great time together.  Attendees will look to the future and discern how we can best use the riches of the catholic tradition to proclaim the gospel in our context.
