Philip is serving at Christ Church Roimata in Christchurch, where Christianne is working as a medical doctor.
New Zealand has a strong Christian heritage but is becoming increasingly secular. There is great need for the gospel and for Christian workers who can communicate this good news in the shifting cultural landscape.
Over the last five years, Philip has completed a master’s degree in Philosophy, served Theology students with UCCF, and worked in publishing as an editor. For the last two years, Philip and Christianne have been part of a new church plant in Glasgow where Philip has been involved in community research and leading bible studies.
Christ Church Roimata was planted in November 2018. At the church, Philip is involved in outreach and in training local Christians in apologetics, equipping them to answer difficult questions and break down intellectual barriers to faith in Jesus.
Christianne is working as a medical doctor. To supplement her income and to enable Philip to volunteer at Christ Church Roimata for a year, they need to raise £3,000. This includes Philip’s flights, visa, ministry conferences and insurance. Please consider supporting Philip and Christianne by using the giving box on this page.
Apologies that this is the first letter I’ve written since we arrived in New Zealand.
As those of you who know me well will be able to attest, this isn’t particularly surprising. Hopefully this letter will update you on what has been going on since we arrived.
We touched down in Christchurch at the beginning of September, with our visas arriving only a few days before we were due to fly out! Thanks to everyone who prayed not only that our visas would turn up in time, but also that we would be content with what God had determined to happen regardless.
