We seek to serve students of The Urantia Book throughout Australia and New Zealand in the fostering of their study of the book and the dissemination of its teachings. We aim to do this by providing a variety of services and programs such as:
An annual conference is organised each year in various locations around the two countries to provide an opportunity for study group members to participate in, and to organise a conference in their local region. Here is where students of the book may gather to exchange views, deepen their understanding of the book and develop warm friendships as they socialise over meals and during other informal discussions.

Study Days – Promoting Regional Gatherings
Every year ANZURA arranges a day when a particular paper is studied on the same day (or over the same weekend) by all those study groups around the globe who choose to participate.
When ANZURA arranges the annual Study Day, the intent and hope is to provide an opportunity for readers to participate in a specially formed study group in their regional area. The value of meeting with other readers is not to be underestimated—after all, our personal growth and religious experiences are best fostered while we are relating—inter-acting—with other personalities—other people!
In this way ANZURA attempts to foster a sense of belonging and cohesion among Urantia Book readers across the vast oceans! Very importantly, such events can also encourage leadership and outreach as practical involvement in study groups can strengthen our resolve and dedication to fulfill the mandate of disseminating the Urantia revelation with a personal approach.
ANZURA has a team of “worker bees” who provide services to students of The Urantia Book through email, mail and telephone, assisting them to locate other readers and study groups in their local regions. No contact details are ever revealed without prior permission.
ANZURA sponsors a gift book program to donate books to libraries and other relevant learning centres in Australia and New Zealand as well as assisting with the supply of books for promotions at markets and book expos.
