Spirited Exchanges (New Zealand)

  is an umbrella name for a variety of initiatives.

It grows from a recognition of the fact that many people of all ages are struggling with issues related to faith and the church.

  • some have been abused in a controlling church culture
  • some want freedom to explore the questions without being told the answers
  • some have had life experiences that cause them to doubt God
  • some are hurting, some are angry, some are bored
  • some are deeply hungry for more spiritual reality.

For all sorts of reasons, people are leaving the church.

Some leave their faith behind as well, a number even find a stronger, more mature faith outside the church.

 Spirited Exchanges

  • doesn’t try to convert people
  • doesn’t try to lure people back into a church fellowship
  • doesn’t try to ‘fix’ th problems.
  • Lets God defend God.

Spirited Exchanges

  • facilitates existing groups for people to process the issues and discuss the questions
  • helps new groups get started
  • offers resources, particularly in the area of faith development
  • listens to stories
  • puts out a newsletter with topics of interest to those struggling with these concerns
  • sometimes holds seminars or workshops

There are now organisations in Australia and New Zealand in addition to the UK.
