Asia Sunday

Rev David Bush, General Secretary of the Methodist Church of New Zealand, writes:

Asia SundayAsia Sunday is celebrated each year on the Sunday before Pentecost. This year the set day is May 13th which is also Mothers Day. For many that could mean the marking of Asia Sunday will be set aside.

The theme in 2018, ‘Embracing the Differently Abled; Upholding Their Dignity’ is a focus which could enrich our worship on another Sunday – before or after the 13th May.
