Have you read our Christian leader's articles yet?


Since 1975 we have been empowering people with disabilities to live to their full potential - physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.

We create places of belonging, hope and encouragement through branches around New Zealand.
Your involvement is warmly welcomed!



Our vision is to see all people, including people with a disability, living out their full potential in Jesus Christ, through the local church community.


3rd Sunday in June

It is an opportunity to be intentional about disability awareness but it's not just about raising awareness.


With branches across the country and camps running throughout the year, there's sure to be an opportunity that's right for you to come and serve alongside us!

Our blog is regularly updated with new articles to suit everyone, including our new Christian Leaders and Christian Camping articles! This is where you can also read our Encourager Magazine articles individually.

Need some encouragement? Head over to our devotions page and read timely devotions written by our Elevate community.
