Welcome to a new ACM Parish Appointment – the Newton Family

E te whānau a te Karaiti, kia ora!

We are incredibly excited and humbled to have been invited to come serve in the parish of Sumner-Redcliffs in Christchurch.

I have been ordained for 8 years having completed a curacy in Christchurch before serving as the Vicar at St Luke’s Church, Greytown, South Wairarapa. I also served as a youth minister for over a decade which was fantastic.

Aimee has recently completed her Masters Degree and is in the process of re-qualifying as a Primary School Teacher. Both Aimee and I are Mish-Kids having grown up in Pakistan and the Middle East, respectively, so ‘mission’ is in our DNA. Josiah (9) and Ariana (7), while sad about leaving their friends, are also excited about where God is calling us to serve as a family.

If you’re around on Saturday 1 April 2023 at 4pm we’d love to have you join us for our official welcome.

God’s awesome peace,
