Daily reflections – listen, reflect, pray

So you can maintain God’s comfort and peace during this uncertain time, each weekday we’ll send you verses from our Kiwi audio Bible and locally written Bible reflections throughout New Zealand’s Covid-19 lockdown.

Little Book of Hope

Our Little Book of Hope has been a very popular resource for people to carry around with them. It features scripture verses themed around peace, strength, unity and hope.

We’ve made this little book into a video that we pray will help give you a continued sense of hope and trust in God who has everything under control.

If you have a few moments, grab a coffee, sit back and reflect on these wonderful verses from God’s Word.
