by Malcolm Falloon.
The year 2014 will mark 200 years of Christian Mission in New Zealand. The mission began among Northern Maori of the Bay of Islands in 1814 with three ‘settler’ missionaries and their families. But it was not until 1825 that the first Christian convert was baptised, with the mission only finally flourishing in the 1830s.
This study identifies and explores the tension between the strategies adopted by Marsden and Williams and the implications of each for the conduct of the mission. What is revealed is an account of great tenacity in the face of many set-backs and an over-whelming confi dence that, under the providence of God, the Christian Gospel could indeed take root in the land of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Malcolm Falloon is the vicar of St Aidan’s, Bryndwr, an Anglican parish within the Christchurch Diocese, New Zealand. He also serves as the Honorary Warden of the Latimer Fellowship of New Zealand, a fellowship of evangelical Anglicans established in 1946.
