Christians Against Poverty

Christians Against Poverty

At CAP, we’re passionate about releasing Kiwis from a life sentence of debt, poverty and its causes.

That’s because poverty causes isolation, shame and fear. And it robs people of their dreams and hope for the future.

So by working with the church, we bring hope that today will get better and the future will be brighter; we offer freedom from the chains of debt, poverty and its causes; and we share the good news that there is a God who loves and values each individual, and that there is a community to walk alongside and advocate for people every step of the way.

Together, with hundreds of employees, volunteers, church partners and financial supporters up and down New Zealand, we are changing this nation, one precious life at a time.

Christian Savings

Christian Savings

Christian Savings represents a special interdenominational partnership that helps Christians throughout New Zealand. For over 55 years the Christian Savings Group has provided investors with an opportunity to support the work of Christian organisations that seek to grow God’s Kingdom.

Christian Savings provides an ethical and meaningful investment opportunity for individuals, denominations and organisations by offering a range of on-call, term, charitable and funeral deposit options. The funds that we hold are used to provide loans to Christian churches and charities, small and large. The need for a Christian-based lending provider continues to be as relevant today as it was since the humble beginnings of the Christian Savings Group in 1962. Since then, we have grown
significantly in our size and scope and have become a common ground for Christian denominations to work together.

It is both a blessing and a privilege to fund the vision of Christian churches and charities in New Zealand. Christian Savings has become a significant resource for churches and charities who require a faith-based lending partner.

Dignity Freedom Network

Dignity Freedom Network

DFN seeks the restoration of dignity and hope for the over 250 million Dalits (previously known as ‘untouchables’) of India, expressing Christ’s love through education, health-care and advocacy. 
With over 4,000 churches, 104 English-medium schools with 26,000+ students, our ministries encompass health care, anti-human trafficking, and women’s empowerment.

Our desire is to end the abhorrent Jogini practice where little girls as young as 5 or 6 are dedicated to the temple goddess, and, after reaching puberty, are trapped in a life religiously sanctioned, ritualised sexual abuse. 

Joginis suffer emotionally, socially, physically and mentally.  They experience health issues, stigmatisation, marginalisation, exploitation and substance abuse. Over 57% have attempted suicide. We prevent dedications and provide hope and care to the Joginis.

Working with the Indian government, our goal is to see the complete eradication of the Jogini practice within the decade. 
This one CAN end.

Better World

Better World

A Social Justice Gap Year for school leavers and young adults- Launching in 2019!

At NZCMS we know that young people are deeply passionate about issues of social justice in our world and we believe that issues of social justice are central to the gospel. One of the biggest obstacles to the people of the world believing that God exists and that he loves them is the pain and suffering that we see all around us.

We also know that it’s sometimes hard to find ways to bring about real change in a way that is effective, ethical, and practical. Better World is designed to take young people on a journey to explore things they are passionate about in the world and then learn together how we can bring about lasting change.

Better World has the vision of equipping a whole generation of young people to reach into the suffering in the world around us and bring the light of the gospel of Christ.
