Reverend Strett Nicolson
I graduated from St Pauls Anglican Theological College, Grahamstown, South Africa in 1991. ( St Pauls has since been renamed as the College of the Transfiguration)
My first appointment in New Zealand, in August 1998, was as Vicar to the Parish of Paparoa in the Auckland Diocese. From 2001 to 2003 I spent two years as a Transitional Priest in charge of the Parish of Clevedon. This was followed by 10 years as Missioner in the East Tamaki Mission District at St Pauls in the Park. For health reasons I retired slightly earlier than usual late in 2013. Between 2016 to 2019 I returned to ministry, part time, in the Beachlands/Maraetai Mission District as priest in charge of St Hildas and St Marks respectively.
In July 2021 I was appointed as interim priest in charge of St Thomas, Tamaki.
I have a high regard for the expression of faith and spiritual insights we have gained through the years from contemplative figures, both historical and contemporary. My own expression of faith is more practical in nature. I trust in the power of prayer, am convinced we are to express our faith as a priesthood of all believers, that it is our responsibility to evangelize and that it is a privilege to serve others. These disciplines combine to make life a ‘Joy in the Lord.’
More than the property investor may value location, location, location, I treasure and believe our faith is about Relationship, Relationship, Relationship.
To hear more, to ask a question, to seek and explanation, or simply to worship in community come and join us at St Thomas.
