STRATEGIC PRIORITIES 
Wairua Pono - People of His Presence
Northcity will reconnect with a culture established on reconciliation with God that draws people into tangible experiences of His presence in the everyday. Expressions of worship, the Word, prayer, and pastoral care will all emphasise the role of the Holy Spirit and the importance of living from the presence of God. 
Tuakana Teina - Lifelong Discipleship
Northcity will continue to promote a culture of reconciliation with God by being lifelong reflective learners of Christ modelled and Spirit empowered living. Opportunities for mentoring and reciprocal learning will be provided that empower people to exhibit the kingdom of God in their own unique ways.
Whanaungatanga - Radical Inclusion
Northcity will develop a culture that promotes unity through reconciliation between all people and cultures by creating space for honouring  difference and prioritising relationships. Initiatives will be undertaken to reach out beyond our whānau to draw in those on the margins. Spaces will continue to be developed that create opportunity for hearing the story of the oppressed and for the development of genuine friendship and belonging. 
Mahi Ngatahi - Bicultural Living
Northcity will grow a culture that promotes reconciliation between tangata whenua (Māori) and tangata tiriti (Non Māori) by living a shared life founded on Te Rongopai (The gospel) and informed by the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, enriched by the knowledge, values, history and practices of Māori and all people that have come to Aotearoa.
