Joy Ministries National

Joy Ministries is an interdenominational Christian organisation that gives individuals with an intellectual disability the opportunity to come together to worship and learn about God.
As many traditional services are not able to cater to the special needs of these people, Joy Ministries provides a safe and positive environment where they can come and learn about Jesus through prayer, worship and activities.
Everyone is welcome at Joy Ministries – people with intellectual disabilities, their family, friends and support people.
Services are generally held on a monthly basis and usually involve a time of prayer, singing and Bible Study, followed by an activity designed to further develop an understanding of the Bible message.

Besides these services each local Joy Ministries team offers their own range of activities like camps and home fellowship groups.
Joy Ministries NZ began in March 1995 and in 2010 celebrated 15 years of ministry.
