The Church of Carpe Crucis does not apologise for being ambitious in its approach to the outworking of the church's ministry, believing it is vital for the times and expression of Christ's love for the world. Donations help towards the fabric and framework of the Outreach Ministry, with a view to never providing overmuch for the church itself, rather sewing as much as possible into the mission field, for God's glory.
International outreach and ministry in the form of relief aid, ministry and advice into areas identified through the leading of the Holy Spirit. Currently active in Pakistan, India and Africa, it is hoped that with the establishment of churches in these areas, that help and provision will also be part of local church provision.
A challenge for anyone who would take it up, make a cross a day for a year. In this first instance, crosses have been sent to UK, India, Holland, Pakistan, United States as well as into homes and churches across Auckland and New Zealand. A 'How to' video to make crosses can be found here.
