Religious Institutions

"The human voice can never reach the distance that is covered by the still small voice of conscience." 

In New Zealand, everyone has the right to practice their religious beliefs in good faith and for the advancement of our community. 


New Zealand is a beautiful place where people are able to express themselves through their religious beliefs. Out of such communities come religious institutions which seek the advancement of their faith but also the enhancement of the wider communities around them. 


There are many relationships with which Religious Institutions must grapple. These relationships can be complex and overlapping. 


They include  Policy Formation, Structure, Employment, Health and Safety, Duty of Care, Volunteerism, Immigration, Privacy, Charity, Ethical Practice, Legislative Changes and Government Operation.


Many Religious Institutions struggle to fully appreciate their legal rights and obligations. Law21 provides specialised advice regarding these problem areas.
