Director, 1988-2006

“On August 5th I arrived at 140 Austin Street, Wellington for a three year appointment. It was to mature into eighteen years of a demanding but totally fulfilling ministry.

The work of evangelisation for the Church by the Enquiry Centre was a major innovation when it was launched in 1961. With parish and priestly support it had become part of the fabric of the Church of New Zealand.

I left the Centre in 2006 humbled at getting a peep at the ongoing action of the Holy Spirit both in the lives of enquirers and in the generous and committed faith lives of CEC supporters. Ad multos annos!”
