The second vicar of St Paul’s was the Rev John Frederick Lloyd. In 1859 he became concerned for the plight of orphans in the parish. Together with Dr J. Kenderdyne he arranged for the care of seven orphans, this number steadily increasing as facilities improved. The Trustees of the St Stephens estate and Bishop Selwyn provided a site for an orphanage at Judges Bay, “near the sea beach where the children can play and bathe”, and in 1866 the children moved into large and airy dormitories. The Rev Lloyd was actively involved in ensuring the wellbeing of the children and was influential in changing the age when children could be sent out to work - raising it from 10 to 12 years of age!

SPAM was spawned back in 2005 a few months after we started our 'new services'. We were a pretty productive bunch for a few years and played a big part in establishing the creative culture of St Paul's. While we've never gone away, we reckoned it was time to reach out to SPAMmers old and new to tell some stories and create some new ones. So we’ve set up a Facebook page where we’re sharing some of the stuff we've done in the past, and discoveries of God intercepting arts and media. We also have some ideas for projects we can create together if people are keen. Come share your thoughts, your creations or discoveries and ideas!

The time has finally come to farewell our beautiful Rebekah from our staff team. Her enormous capacity and great love has ably run our Pre-School programme at St Paul’s over the last four years while completing her BA and MA in commerce at Auckland University. Her heart for God and prayer are reflected in the faith and enthusiasm of the children coming through the Salt and Light programs, and we can see the love and trust that the parents have in her. So it is with sadness and joy that we say thank you and all the best as she steps into the business world. The real joy is that you will continue to see her bright and beautiful presence around St Paul’s as she continues to participate in the many threads of ministry she is involved in. We will be celebrating and thanking Rebekah at both morning services on Sunday 26 March.

Fancy finding a place of peace, reflection and rest in the midst of your working week? During Lent, the 40 days leading to Easter, we are offering a half hour mid-week service of scripture, silence and prayer at 12:30pm on Thursdays. At today’s service we were so encouraged to see people flowing into St Paul’s away from the bustle to come and reflect. We open the doors at 12pm so feel free to come early, bring your lunch and have a coffee and a chat. See you there.
