Applying Christ’s Call
to Faith Community Nursing in 2017
Friday 8TH and Saturday 9 September 2017
Come to Auckland to hear an international perspective on Faith Community Nursing: Helen Wordsworth, co-founder of Parish Nursing in the UK, will be in New Zealand during the spring and has kindly agreed to speak at our conference.
Helen will relate her message to our theme verse: “Jesus is the same yesterday and today and forever” HEB 13:8. She will also present the research that she did for her doctorate and has published as “Rediscovering a Ministry of Health: Parish nursing as a mission of the local church.” This provides a compelling argument for churches pondering the value of a Faith Community Nurse so invite people to hear what she has to say.
Other speakers will be from among our membership:
Rachael Westenra – the after effects of an earthquake
Janet Hogan – emergency preparedness
Elizabeth Niven – “current research and thinking on spiritual care in dementia” Elizabeth is one of our Life Members and a past chairperson of NZFCNA.
