The Church in the Quakes Te Hāhi i Ngā Rūwhenua
The Church in the Quakes Te Hāhi i Ngā Rūwhenua is a project undertaken by author Melissa Parsons. The aim was to document the experiences of Christchurch churches and their congregations during the 2010 and 2011 Canterbury earthquakes. From August 2012 to December 2013, Parsons surveyed more than 90 churches in the Christchurch region, and conducted 50 interviews with individuals from 17 denominations. These stories were later published in her book, Rubble to Ressurrection: Churches Respond in the Canterbury Quakes.
This collection holds transcripts of many of the interviews from this project. Where possible, audio and video files have also been added to the collection.
