Billy Graham

During the 1950s the New Life Movement encouraged thousands of people to join the Presbyterian church. Many were attracted by the sense of community it provided in the new baby-boomer suburbs on city peripheries. In 1959 the Presbyterian and other churches helped sponsor the visit to New Zealand of US evangelist Billy Graham. He drew large crowds – such as this one at Auckland's Carlaw Park – and hundreds joined local churches.
