The Ministry Team
The Vicar: The Revd Ian Hardcastle, M.E. (Electr), MTh
I came to ministry from a 22 year career in Computer Software Development. Called into ordained ministry while in England, I studied at St John's College, Nottingham and served as a Curate at St James', Calisle. A call back to NZ, brought us back to Auckland and to St Stephen's in 2009.
Helen, my wife, has a background in nursing and ministry training from YWAM and part-time study at St John's resulting in a Certficate of Theology and Ministry. Helen is neither ordained nor paid but serves in many roles, leading the prayer ministry team, some preaching, home group leadership and more.
