Erica is the Convenor of the Church and Community committee
I have been in the parish since the early 70s but have been part of Anglican and Methodist congregations before that and appreciate an interdenominational perspective. One of my most influential experiences was a period in Washington DC with the Church of the Saviour with its duel emphasis on meditation and social involvement.
I am lucky enough to have children and a step daughter as well as all our grandchildren in Auckland with only one step daughter overseas. I am retired now after a background mainly in the social services. Reading, current affairs, working in the garden and going on trips in our campervan are my current interests.
