Meeting Wednesday August 1st 9:45AM
Guest Speaker: Peter J. Lineham
Topic: Religious Trends in Auckland
in light of immigration
Peter will focus on the North Shore, but will also look
more generally at the city, and observe that recent
immigration has meant there is a plethora of religious
activity in Auckland, but much of it goes unnoticed by
those who are only aware of the decline in membership
of the traditional Protestant churches.
Peter Lineham is Professor of History at Massey University in Albany, and the
author of a recent book "Sunday Best" about the patterns of the "mainstream
churches" which once had a key role in the shaping of New Zealand society. He has
also written a small book about North Shore religious history "Ventures of Faith and
Community" published jointly by the Anglican and Wesley Historical Societies in 2014,
and many other books and articles about religion. Peter speaks extensively to media
about religious issues and trends. Hailing from Karamea on the West Coast of the
South Island, he has moved steadily north over the years and next year will retire in
