The Baptist NZ Podcast Network is a growing collection of podcast shows with the aim to encourage, inspire, inform, and bring into focus a wide range of topics and discussions across the breath of Baptist expression in Aotearoa New Zealand. The hope is that every person within the Baptist movement of churches in New Zealand will find at least one podcast show that nurtures their following of Jesus. Who is Jesus? We also hope people who don’t identify as ‘Baptist’ will find something helpful here too. All of the podcast shows below are also available on the Baptist NZ app, Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

The views expressed in any of the podcast shows and episodes below are not necessarily and probably won’t be the views of every person in our Team of 40,000 Baptists in New Zealand.
