The Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand is the publisher of this Blog. The Candour blog as a resource for Presbyterian Church leaders. Candour has been published as a hard copy magazine for many years, and in June 2015 has moved to a blog format, rather than the traditional printed publication.

The Presbyterian Church believes it is called by God to work with others in making Jesus Christ known through:

  • Teaching and nurturing people in Christian faith
  • Loving service responding to human need
  • Proclaiming the gospel
  • Seeking to transform society
  • Caring for God’s creation

Blog moderator and committee

The Candour Blog is moderated. We are in the process of appointing a Blog Moderator, and in the meantime this role is filled by the Church’s Associate Communications Manager, Jose Reader, who is supported in this role by the Candour Blog Committee, which includes the following enthusiastic people:

  • Rev Anne Thomson
  • Rev Martin Stewart
  • Rev Stuart Vogel
  • Rev Allister Lane
  • Rev Kevin Ward
  • Rev Wayne Matheson


Contributions to the Candour Blog are welcome. If you are interested in making a contribution – either by responding to an existing blog post, or perhaps by sharing your thoughts on a particular topic – then please read the Getting Involved section of this blog for further information.
