Sue, our vicar, first came to St Stephen’s in 1987 in her twenties, a new mother, new minister.

Life and ministry took her elsewhere. She is a counsellor and educator; she loves people and listening. Sue developed an education programme for Anglican ministers and taught at St John’s theological college in Auckland. She has been a primary school teacher, university chaplain and  parish minister. Sue’s husband Stuart farms and teaches agriculture in the Waikato; they have four adult children.

Sue loves being with her family, bush walking, theatre, literature and being creative.
