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.
