Dean of Waiapu Cathedral - Napier, by 22 June

Dean of Waiapu

The Bishop of Waiapu is seeking to appoint a priest to the role of the Dean of Waiapu Cathedral.

The Bishop has recently held a consultation with the Cathedral Parish of St John the Evangelist including Diocesan representatives to consider the future needs of the parish and their requirements for a priest to be appointed as Dean of the Cathedral. A full report of this consultation giving insight into the perceived needs and issues of high importance for the parish, including a parish profile, is available on the Cathedral and Diocesan websites as noted below.

The roles of the Dean are many and varied and will call upon the gifts of a suitably qualified Anglican priest to minister within a team environment to a parish community looking to develop ministry toward the future needs of the church. The Dean will also be called upon to strengthen and develop community and civic relationships within Napier City. The Cathedral is unique in that it holds the cathedra of the Bishop of Waiapu and the cathedra of Atipihopa o Aotearoa. The new Dean will need to be confident in acting to honour and nurture this long-held relationship and also the relationship with Te Amorangi o Te Tairawhiti. The Cathedral is one focal point for significant gatherings of the Diocese of Waiapu. The Bishop is seeking to appoint a Dean who can be part of a team to develop suitable liturgical resources for these gatherings and assist in resourcing similar services throughout the Diocese. The Cathedral is also home to the Spirituality Centre for the Diocese of Waiapu and will look to a new Dean to support and uphold this ministry.

Expressions of interest including CV and the names of three referees may be made to the Bishop of Waiapu via the Bishop’s PA email, or addressed to PO Box 227, Napier 4140. Applications close 5pm on the 22nd June 2017.
