RESOURCED! is all about Resources. Resources for youth leaders. Resources that engage young people. Resources that build strong, vibrant Christ-centred youth ministries.


StraNdZ is the hub of Children and Family ministry in the Anglican Church in New Zealand. They encourage, equip, resource, train and cheer on those working in this vital ministry around the country. 


For more than 20 years Mainly Music has provided a safe and fun space to caregivers and their children. They provide a wonderful opportunity to meet other young families while encouraging children to develop gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, mathematical and pre-reading skills as well as socialize with others. Mainly Music and the Anglican Church have a strong relationship with many of our churches hosting groups. We hope you will find a community of welcoming people to connect with.
To locate a group near you type your address into the Mainly Music group finder.


Hikumutu Camps (originally Happy Valley) were founded in 1974 when teenager Val Murray had the dream of growing her own Christian horse-riding camps, giving youth nationwide an opportunity to enjoy real country riding and a loving Christian community. In 2001 Revs Val and Lance Riches, moved the camps to their family farm to enjoy the bush, hills, river and mountain views of the King Country. The Hikumutu Lodge was established and the dream has become a legacy through the hard work and prayers of many.


We are richly blessed to have responsibility for five Anglican schools across the Diocese of Waikato & Taranaki. As schools of special character they strive for cultural, academic, sporting, and spiritual excellence. We have a team of chaplains who support students and intentionally provide a Christian space for worship, reflection, prayer and ethics. To learn more about the schools and gain access to their websites see below.
