NZ Herald – Gloriavale – Zion Pilgrim’s story on leaving the Christian Community
NZ Herald – Hope Project – 14/05/2022
Zion Pilgrim had spent all his life living at Gloriavale on the South Island’s West Coast.
It was the only life he knew growing up.
But in 2020 he left Gloriavale after questioning the leadership, a decision he doesn’t regret.
It was, according to Pilgrim, listening to audiobooks that first made him think the community he grew up in was not as it seemed.
