St Andrew's Day and Ordinations ...


Here's another word to wow your friends and family in November: protokletos

It's Greek and has been used to describe St Andrew as the 'first-called' - the fisher who followed Jesus. Although he does not play a huge role in the Gospels he has been firmly connected with vocations. For that reason dioceses across the communion have celebrated ordinations at the end of November to coincide with St Andrew's feast. This year we are delighted to announce the ordinations of Mele Prescott, Stephen Bright and Geoff Lamason. We invite you to join us at the Cathedral Church of St Peter (Hamilton) on November 26 at 2pm; and further we ask you to pray for them and their ministries. 


My name is Mele Prescott. I am of Tongan descent, born and raised in Aotearoa. I have been a student at St John’s Theological College since 2013. I recently graduated in a Bachelor of Human Services (youth work major) at the University of Auckland and hope to complete a Bachelor of Theology in November at the University of Otago. I have always had a heart for the Church, particularly in youth ministries both in the Church and wider community. I am delighted that my first steps into ordained ministry are in Taranaki and with the people of the mountains.

Malo 'aupito.



Kia ora my name is Stephen Bright and I grew in Palmerston North, attending All Saints church where I was baptised and confirmed. I have been an educator for most of life, working in high schools, polytechnics, Private Training Establishments and currently at the University of Waikato. I am Deacon Assistant at the parish of Holy Trinity, Hamilton and my intention is to be involved in ministry in a non-stipendiary role in the foreseeable future. Thank you for your prayers.  



I was born in Napier and raised in Northland. I have taught in a range of schools from Sole Charge to large intermediates. My career has included missionary teaching in PNG. My wife and I are proud grandparents of nine. We are members of St Matthew's Morrinsville.
