New Zealand’s population is steadily increasing. It should reach 5 million in the mid-2020s and 5.75 million by 2061. For a decade, the Baptist Churches of New Zealand have remained on a numerical plateau which, by comparison with a growing population, is effectively a decline.

Nationally, how can Baptist churches launch off the numerical plateau of the last ten years? About 120 of our churches have less than 100 attending, and about 60 others have between 100 and 200 attending. So 74% of the 243 Baptist Union churches in New Zealand have fewer than 200 in attendance, and most are sole-congregation churches.
