Melissa has a deep passion for ministry within the church particularly with children, youth, young adults and families. She believes that all ages have a space in worship and that we are each called to a ministry of service and witness in the church and the world.
Central to Melissa’s fourteen years of work with young people in the church is an important understanding of mentorship and journeying alongside while creating spaces where the Holy One can be encountered and community can be built and Christian formation can naturally take place.
Melissa has served our National Anglican Church, Provincial Church, Diocesan Church and the local community church – Church is so much more than who we are in this one place. We are a connected community that spans generations and experiences. When not at the Cathedral Melissa works as a Teacher and enjoys being outside amongst the trees or cooking in the kitchen!
