St Paul’s Anglican Church in Auckland, New Zealand, is the city’s oldest church, “a light in the city since 1841”.
In their own words “We are convinced that our lives are caught up in a massive story of God restoring all of creation through Jesus. He showed us how to love and so we want to be loving. This may look slightly different for each of us but if we do it well, we suspect it will involve creating, relating and restoring…”
SPAM is the St Paul’s Art and Media, a collective of individuals exploring how the arts and media relate to contemporary expressions of spirituality and faith.
I have just loved watching their various enactments of the Christmas story over the years, and all these past videos are available on this site, e.g. Star News, Bethlehem from 2013, a wonderful news article about how Caesar's census affects the “little people from the little town” of Bethlehem.
