An Anatomy of Antipodean Anglicanism : The Anglican Church in New Zealand 1945 to 2012
The Anglican Church has historically been the largest church in New Zealand, with an extensive structure of parishes, dioceses, and organisations. Mr Derbyshire examined the ways in which the structure of the church evolved over 70 years in response to changing circumstances. While the level of census adherence had declined considerably, actual participation had declined at a much lower rate. He concluded that the church had responded positively to issues such as gender, ethnicity, social and economic inequality, the care of the environment, and social justice.
