After ten years of ministry in the Tawa parish, the Reverend Terry McIvor will be retiring from the stipended priesthood in January 2020. Terry came to the Tawa Anglicans from a Baptist ministry, taking up the role of Mission Director and Ministry Associate. Two years later in 2011, Terry was ordained as a Priest and ministered as an assistant with the Reverend Julie Rokotokala. Over those years Terry helped in other parishes where pastoral leadership was required, and he did so with enthusiasm whilst continuing his duties at Tawa. Terry’s pastoral care, alongside his dedicated interest in peoples lives, means he is a loved and familiar face in the Tawa community as a whole. As Terry and Joy transition to a new phase of their lives, we are greatly thankful for the service, sacrifices, care, and spiritual ministry they have offered the church. However, we are equally thankful that they will be remaining as part of our faith community as they both continue to engage as members of Christ’s body.
