Auckland Mayor Len Brown has told Auckland church leaders that the Church is right at the heart of the city.
He said he really wanted everyone’s thoughts and feedback on the issues, and in some cases, for churches to come up with constructive ideas which could provide input to the Council, maybe even with joint projects.
“I really see the churches being significantly involved in housing, as it is well into helping in education. I want churches to assist our young people to improve…we saw what happened in London with the riots,” he pointed out.
He said there were about 200 different ethnic groups in Auckland City, and churches and schools were particularly significant places in helping bring about multi-cultural understanding and harmony.
