'Women Who Knew Christ' production

New Zealanders of several denominations present 'Women Who Knew Christ' production

A multi-denominational Easter production titled, “Women Who Knew Christ” — a musical directed by a missionary from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — was recently performed at the Whitianga Town Hall by women from the community.

Richard and Claudene Gordon, senior missionaries with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, extended an invitation to the Whitianga community to participate in the production.

“We invited all denominations in our community to join us,” said Elder Gordon. "And nearly all have been involved with the production in one way or another."
