Help and hope for every home

Over the past 30 years that FamilyLife NZ has been serving couples in Aotearoa New Zealand, more than 24000 people have been impacted by attending on of our transformational marriage getaways.

Wow! That’s 24,000 lives impacted. That’s 12,000 families changed for good. The trajectory of those homes will forever be impacted. But it’s only the beginning. We need your help if we’re going to reach the 1.7 million families who call this nation home.

Every home a godly home. That’s our vision and with your help we will see this realised.

A story of hope

"Knowing how close I came to throwing our marriage away scares me. In the darkest times I could never imagine that it could become good again."

We have a matching gift opportunity for every new or increased recurring gift to be matched up to the value of $40,000

If you give $50 a month we get an additional $600 in matching gift.
If you set up a recurring gift of $100, we get the matching $1,200.
Or if you give $400 a month, we get $4,800 on top of that!

Help us reach all $40,000 in matching donations so we can continue to bring help and hope to marriages and families and see our nation thrive.

What are the goals?

This year we’ve trained 45 Marriage Mentor couples and strengthened 243 marriages through our in-person getaways. We’ve also worked with 50 church ministry leaders on strengthening their strategy for helping marriages to thrive.

With the size of our existing team we can only marginally grow this impact, but with your help we’re hoping to grow our team so we can reach even more homes with practical help for their marriages. 

Strengthen 420 couples through in person getaways

Train 150 Marriage Mentors

Launch 50 new marriage small groups
