-Churches respond in the Canterbury Quakes

by Christchurch Author Melissa Parsons

This moving volume, enhanced by coloured photographs, presents stories of the churches' response to the Canterbury earthquakes.

In those disasters of 2010 and 2011 — among the largest in New Zealand's history— how did ordinary folk in the pews reach out to their suffering neighbours? The stories of many church congregations who responded never made it to the mass media.

But Melissa Parsons of Avonhead, who experienced the quakes first hand, was keen to set the record straight.

"I hope these stories will encourage both the churches and the wider community," she wrote in her introduction, "and I pray they might serve as a guide and inspiration to churches facing similar challenges in the future."

Melissa said it had taken her two years to write the book, and that she had interviewed more than fifty people in the course of her research.

Her account is structured in three sections:
The Church Responds,
the Church Grieves, and
the Church Rebuilds. Please click here to ask a question
