Welcome to St John's Anglican Church in Trentham


We have finally been appointed a 0.5 Priest in Charge starting 21 February 2024.  See the service recording below.

The Reverend Simon and Reverend Jessica Falconer are both ordained ministers who have moved from their Parish in Ōtaki to be with us exclusively at St John’s.

This is the email received by the parish ...

Kia ora e te whanau a Te Karaiti. 

We would like to thank you for all of your prayers over the last 18 months in anticipation of us arriving. Know that for us, it has been a long journey too. 

We are tremendously honoured and feel incredibly blessed to be joining your parish. We deeply feel God's calling into this new role and are excited about the new possibilities of growing in faith with you all. 

Our family includes two teenage sons, Sam and Eli, and two crazy labradoodles. Please hold Sam and Eli particularly in your prayers as they transition over this time to a new house and new schools. The dogs will be fine. 

We look forward to joining you for services in December and getting to know you all.

Peace be with you,
Rev. Simon and Rev. Jessica
