Tim has been the Vicar of Papanui since 2020. He loves to look at the Bible in its historical context and then apply it to our lives today. He has studied Near Eastern Archaeology and regularly participates in archaeological excavation seasons in Israel. The daily life of people then and across the millennia is fascinating. How did the people live, who first prayed the Psalms and to whom the words of the Prophets were first directed?
Tim also likes tramping and trains. He is married and has three children. Even though he grew up in Germany and lived in various countries around the world, he has spent the majority of his life in New Zealand. It may be because of that interest in people’s journeys that he enjoys conducting weddings and funerals.
