Beneath the Southern Cross

We’re excited to share with you the brand new music video by Malcolm Gordon, ‘Beneath the Southern Cross’. This song celebrates the diversity and richness of the Presbyterian Church here in New Zealand, and the heritage of the story that we are a part of. It is our gift to the wider Church to give thanks for 200 years of the Gospel in Aotearoa.
