"Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. The burning sand will become a pool, the thirsty ground bubbling springs."

ICDFANZ Re-launch Scripture (2016)
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor."
HAERE MAI & WELCOME
ICDFANZ is where Christians can connect their faith and calling in the performing arts and prayer movement to express creative worship in spirit and in truth. A place where we can use the creative arts to be salt and light to our nation and to the world.
Our inaurgural meeting was held on 5th November 1988 in Auckland. Rosalyn Smaill was our first National Coordinator and the fellowship was first known as CDFNZ (Christian Dance Fellowship of New Zealand). We were initially based in the South Island town of Oamaru.
VISION & MISSION
Our mission is to provide a place of friendship, support and nurturing, to train and empower followers of Jesus to honour and worship God through dance and the creative arts throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. We aim to achieve this by providing resources through workshops, gatherings and online events and networking.
