Nick Young, the Diocesan Manager, has announced the appointment of Ella Brown to the Diocesan Operations Team. Ella will lead administration and volunteer functions in the Anglican Centre, picking up some of the many responsibilities of Karen Stewart who leaves us in early August.
Ella brings with her a wealth of experience across many fields. Starting out her career in libraries in North Otago, Ella came to Wellington ten years ago to work as a Children and Youth Specialist at Wellington City Libraries. She has also developed educational resources for a Christian charitable trust, worked in digital records management handling Treaty of Waitangi research material, and worked in student administration before starting a family. Ella has a long family heritage of Christian ministry, and grew up in a household where “family on mission” was the norm. She is currently a piano teacher, and is the Parish Administrator in Johnsonville. She is married to Duncan and they have three children: Isla (7), Fletcher (6), and Niamh (4).
Ella begins a handover period with Karen next week, and officially joins the team from the 29th of July. Please welcome Ella warmly when you come across her in the office.
