Originally from South Africa but a proud Kiwi for almost 7 years, Ashleigh is 19, doing a Bachelor of Architectural Studies and replaces Holly who is going on maternity leave. She loves art, music, dancing, cats, coffee and food! Asheligh says, "I have been privileged enough to have a role in seeing our intermediate and high school youth grow in their understanding and faith in God, with a fair amount of my own growth happening along the way too! I am so ready and excited to take on this more active role - Holly leaves big shoes to fill but of course I will do my best!"

Our wonderful church administrators, Eleanor Eugster and Emily Ford, are both moving on to exciting opportunities. Eleanor is returning to the UK to pursue further study in Glasgow and Emily has an exciting new job in journalism. This means St Paul’s is on the lookout for two full-time administratively and operationally-gifted individuals – an office administrator and a ministry support role. If you love St Paul’s and would like to join the staff in either of these ways, we would love to hear from you!  For more info or a job description please email Gabrielle Peake. Applications close on Friday 5 June.

St Paul’s is looking for a practical and service oriented person to join the team at St Paul’s on a part-time basis (24 hours pw). The focus of the role is on the care of the church and grounds, liaison with groups who use the church and the set-up/smooth-functioning of Sunday services. Hours of work include Tuesday mornings (to attend staff and planning meetings) and most Sundays. So if you know your way around a toolbox and a garden shed, have a head for logistics and a heart for people and ministry, then we’d love to hear from you. For more info and a job description, please email Mary Hockey.
