What We Do

Supporting Budget Services

CBNZ supports budget services and their financial mentors across New Zealand, Aotearoa. We do this through training, resources and networking.

Training & Resources

CBNZ provides training opportunities to help upskill financial mentors, so that they in turn can empower their clients.

Training is often recorded, and is available to view to members only online.


CBNZ is a national community of practice, with members from Kerikeri to Invercargill.   We share information and resources. We also provide opportunities to meet other financial mentors, so we can better support and encourage one another.

Who We Are

CBNZ Inc is an interdenominational organisation working to support and bring together, the many Christian ‘not for profit’ services and individuals working in the budgeting and financial services fields. These services help people struggling with money issues whatever their faith.

By networking and co-operating together, we believe that we can increase our positive impact in the lives of the thousands of people we work with each year and also society in general. Together, we have the ability to share resources, training and other knowledge acquired, with the added benefit that we don’t individually have to ‘reinvent the wheel’.

CBNZ is a registered ‘not for profit’ incorporated society.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

Our Values

Faith in the living God
All we do is underpinned by our faith in God the Father, his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
We are committed to following the role model of our Lord Jesus Christ, by listening carefully to him, to one another and to our communities.
Respect for the autonomy and contribution of all persons
Our motivation comes from God's love for all people; all are created in his image, all have something worthwhile to contribute and all are free to make their own decisions.
Best practice
Excellence of service is acknowledged as essential in all our work. Supporting the enhancement of work with budgeting clients is the reason for our existence. This support will occur through our networking and information sharing.
The Treaty of Waitangi
We affirm the Treaty of Waitangi as playing an important part in the formation of Aotearoa New Zealand and its relevance to our country today.
We will be flexible enough to respond to people's emerging needs.
