Brian McLaren in New Zealand

mclaren09a

Brian is visiting New Zealand from 1st to 10th August 2015 as the guest of The Smallternative Trust, a New Zealand-based relief and development agency.

Named by TIME magazine as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America, Brian (a leading figure in the emerging church movement), brings a fresh and often provocative vision of what it means to be a Christian today.

Issues that Brian will address, include the declining traditional church, a new way of “church” (creating your own learning community in a home, or other hospitable space), inter-religious divisions and reconciliation, ecology, poverty, social justice, and the church and homosexuality.

Brian will be visiting Auckland, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Wellington and Christchurch.
