More than 150 Anglican clergy from Waiouru to Wellington have gathered at the Copthorne this week to talk about how they can better support youth.
Bishop of Wellington Justin Duckworth, ordained last month, said that over the three-day conference it had become clear that the clergy needed to focus on parents and families.
“As a church we need to work out how to better equip children and their families … The young are the future of our church.
“If we’re not helping young people, the church is not supporting a large percentage of our parishes,” he said.
