ProLife Events

40 Days for Life saving lives

Family Life International NZ holds various prolife, pro-family events throughout New Zealand each year. 

Generally held in Auckland and Wellington, these events are usually, steeped in prayer as we recognise the spiritual nature of building a culture of life. 

Events include prayer vigils, 40 Days for Life, Masses, conferences, seminars, LifeFests and other events.  Our conferences and seminars feature interesting, knowledgeable and powerful speakers from all over the world.  We endorse the annual National March for Life held in Wellington, having founded the event in 2017 to commemorate the tragic passing of the Contraception, Sterilisation and Abortion Act, 1977. 

Come along to any of the events below, make new friends and help rebuild a culture of life in New Zealand!

Prayer and Witness to End Abortion

Join us on Wednesday mornings to pray for an end to abortion, while being a sign of hope to all who pass by, especially abortion minded women, and abortion workers.

Family Life International (FLI) has two prayer vigil times outside AMAC on a Wednesday morning:
Auckland Medical Aid Centre (AMAC)
283-289 Dominion Road, Mt Eden
(meet on the opposite side of the road)

  • 7:00am to 8:00am
  • 9:30am to 10:30am

Please note: While Auckland is at Covid Alert Level 3, vigils are taking place only by arrangement. It is currently lawful for two bubbles to come together outside with a maximum of 10 people. Participants must social distance, and wear a face mask (unless you have a valid exemption).

An hour of prayer is held outside the Te Mahoe abortion facility on a Wednesday morning:
Te Mahoe abortion facility

All are welcome to join us, however, each participant must sign a one-off Statement of Peace. If you have participated in 40 Days for Life you have done this.
