Hi, I’m Emily,  I really enjoy connecting with the Cathedral family, worshipping God in this place of ‘Piki Mai’ and discovering how the Cathedral can continue to bless our city.


My husband, kids and I love getting out in the wild outdoors of Aotearoa and are excited about being a part of God’s adventures here!

Hi, I'm 'Joce', 


I love interacting with the other amazing people at the Cathedral and I feel I’m doing what God has asked of me.

I’m looking forward to everything that’s coming up and can’t wait for more people to discover what a friendly and vibrant place the cathedral is.

I have 4 children and 6 grandchildren, including one  who is 21!

Hello, I'm Graham.


I enjoy this role and I believe it  important and worthwhile.

I am looking forward to growing our core congregation. 

When I'm not in the Cathedral you may find me sailing my old clinker built  dinghy at my bach at Marahau. 


Hi, I'm Paul.

Music is an integral part of our worship services, our organ can be heard every Sunday and on major feast days. Regardless of your background, you are always welcome to connect with us. Simply come along and immerse yourself in the presence of God.

Look forward to seeing you soon!


Hi I'm Nigel


I am excited about developing our Cathedral Choir into a renowned singing group and to offer excellent choral music as part of the Cathedral's worship.


Hi, I am Joy and I enjoy the challenge very much of running the Children's Church and cherish the time I get to spend at the Cathedral and with the children. Their open hearts and smiling faces make my role a true pleasure.

In the 'Cathedral Kids' programme I am using Bible Explore to guide and help me plan for Sunday mornings. There is a real focus on using the stories, readings and psalms from the Bible; the same stories we have all grown up with; to talk about faith, love, kindness and forgiveness. 

We would love for you and your children to join us.

Hi, I'm Rebekah.

I like working in the Cathedral office because I can help people with anything they need (within my power, of course!)


I’m looking forward to all the fun events we have planned. Especially the Blessing of the Animals. At home I like to play video games and watch twitch streams
