Reverend Ian Campbell retires from parish ministry at Easter. Ian has been Vicar in the Parish of Otaki since 2003. For the last 16 years the Otaki parish has been enriched and blessed by Ian’s wonderful gift of creativity, deep spirituality, and celebration of God’s creation. He has encouraged and supported the development of missional activities such as mainly music and Prayers and Squares.
Loved4Life, which started in the parish with Ian’s encouragement, has now become a national organisation. We have valued Ian’s caring ministry and teaching.
A celebration of Ian’s ministry will be held on 7 April, and his final Sunday in the parish will be Easter Sunday, 21 April.
Ian and Jenny leave the parish with our love and blessings, and wishes for a long and happy retirement.
