As Urban Neighbours of Hope…

We immerse ourselves in the life of neighbourhoods facing urban poverty, joining the risen Jesus to seek transformation from the bottom up.
We live and serve as small, responsive neighbourhood-based teams within cities in Thailand, New Zealand and Australia.

Our website is currently under re-construction. Some of the pages and links are not active but will be up and going as soon as possible including the local sites for Thailand, New Zealand and Australia (featuring localised content, news and events). Sorry for any inconvenience but please re-visit shortly.

Commissioned for Service

All the UNOH teams across the four regions gathered for a Commissioning Service on the 9th of July, 2015, at Manurewa Baptist Church in Auckland. Matt Hakiaha, a Maori Christian elder, gave a special welcome in English and Maori.


A Healing Space…

It’s Tuesday afternoon again… it’s a quiet time. Time for art. Gabriel and I and our three children are gathered out the back in our little art studio. Today three out of our five regulars turn up. They rarely all make it on the same week. None of us feel compelled to chat.
