Family and NZ Society

All of us are part of a family of one sort or another. How do we make sense of family in today’s complex world? How do social and cultural changes influence family trends and our understanding of what families should be like, including marriage, gender roles, and parenting?

This course examines the family, and family life, in contemporary New Zealand from theological and sociological perspectives.

Perfect if you are engaged in ministry, particularly to children, young people and families.
