Steve says:-

First off let me say that I am delighted to have been asked by the leadership of this team and of this Diocese to do church with you for however many years the Lord has determined.

My wife is called Olivia and i have two daughters, Kyla and Tegan who are 18 and 15 years old. Their older brother passed away when he was only 3 months old. I am 51 years old and have been in the ordained ministry for about 22 years. We love camping and walking and are looking forward to discovering the beauty of your part of the world.

We also love our animals and are fortunate to be able to bring them with us.

Olivia’s parents are not far away, she also has 2 brothers near by and I have 2 sisters in the UK as well.

I am looking forward to the opportunities God is giving us to explore the future.
