The Reverend Stephen and Karmenne Prebble
It is with sadness that I have to inform you of the resignation of the Reverend Stephen Prebble, Vicar of All Saints, Matamata. Stephen has held this position diligently since 2012. Before that, he served the parish in many different ways.
Stephen and his wife, Karmenne, have made the decision to relocate to Tauranga in order to care for Stephen's mother. This is a carefully and prayerfully discerned decision and reflects their deep desire to provide the best possible care for a beloved parent.
would like to take this opportunity to thank Stephen for his dedication to the Parish of All Saints Matamata and to this Diocese.
Stephen and Karmenne will complete their ministry at All Saints in October 2018. I pray that the future will be filled with new opportunities for them both within the love and purposes of God.
The Reverend Tim and Julie Lloyd
I also have to inform you that the Reverend Tim Lloyd has resigned from the position of Vicar of Holy Trinity, Forest Lake, Hamilton, a position he has held with dedication since February 2015.
After much care and prayerful deliberation, Tim believes that he is unable to continue to offer priestly leadership with in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia following the passage of Motion 7 at the recent General Synod Te Hinota Whanui. This motion leaves the matter of the blessing of same gender civil marriages to each bishop and Diocese to decide.
While I am deeply saddened that Tim has come to this decision, I respect it and know how carefully Tim has thought this through. I want to thank Tim for his dedication to the Parish of Holy Trinity, and to this Diocese.
Tim and Julie will complete their ministry at Holy Trinity on Sunday 21st of October 2018. I continue to hold them both in my prayers as the future unfolds in God's care and providence.
