Make a difference
The cost of your gift is allocated to the relevant ministry or mission area. Should we receive contributions in excess of the needs in a particular area, we will use the excess in other areas represented by gift items in this catalogue.
The Gifts for Local Mission programme has been developed to support the local mission and ministry work of the Baptist community throughout New Zealand. Gifts have been identified in order to support areas of greatest need.
Over time these gifts may change to ensure that they respond to the needs of our community and those of the people within New Zealand.
1. What is the Gifts for Local Mission?
Gifts for Local Mission is a new way to support the work of the Baptist Churches of New Zealand. It provides a way of contributing to the local mission and Baptist ministry work through buying a gift for a friend or family member. The price of the gift is then allocated to the relevant mission or ministry area and the gift recipient receives a card describing the gift and the difference it will make.
2. How have the gifts been selected?
The gifts in the catalogue have been chosen as they represent the areas of greatest need within New Zealand communities and in relation to local mission and the work of Baptist ministries. From time to time the gifts may change to stay relevant with current needs.
3. How is the gift delivered?
The gift giver sends a card to the gift recipient that describes the gift and the difference it will make. The price of the gift is then allocated to the relevant ministry or mission area. Should contributions be received in excess of the needs in a particular area, the excess will be allocated to other areas represented by gifts in the catalogue.
4. How and when will I receive the card?
The gift giver will receive a card within a week of making the purchase. The card and envelope can then be personalised to the gift recipient and sent to them in time for their special occasion.
