Commendations for Paul’s church consultations/ interim processes

Wardens + Council of St Simon’s Church Kaleen-Giralang ACT: “Parish Council…would like to say thank you, Paul, for all you have done for us; for your guidance and wisdom, for getting us into a position to know each other and be able to work in a collaborative and inclusive way – and for always leading us by example. You have equipped us with the tools needed to operate in a way that is much more effective and considerate, and have brought us to a point where we are ready to work effectively with a new Minister. Again, thank you for everything.”

Other comments from Kaleen-Giralang “Our church has come to life again!”…”I was constantly amazed that you held us so close to your heart and yet continued to push us to the future, rather than turn us into ‘your’ church – owned by you. This has been a great gift”…”So many blessings received from you – always pointing us to Jesus!”

Church Wardens at St Stephen’s Church Kambah ACT “Paul’s special leadership ability was most needed at St Stephen’s Kambah. He came to the parish at a time when the church was in the process of recovering from a divisive event. Paul…was able to relate to all parties in the parish. His proactive approach to the situation… was tireless, empathetic, respectful, supportive and effective and has been a focus in reuniting members of the community, and under Paul’s guidance the parish has redeveloped into a united and vibrant corporate identity.

Comments from parishioners at St Stephen’s Church Kambah ACT

With love and gratitude for your ministry, we thank you for:

  • responding to an urgent need, accepting us as we were and for being so comfortable with us
  • your massive generosity in time and trust, your calming influence among us and your desire to see the Kingdom of God a reality in the lives of those you serve
  • your spiritual insight, inspiration and unfailing good humour
  • your steadfast belief in God’s word and the clarity and wonderful delivery of your message
  • the questions with which you have challenged and helped us to step out of our comfort zones, work on our relationship with God and to move forward with Him

Comments from Team Members at the Church of the Good Shepherd, Waterlooville, UK

“We have learnt so much from you…I can’t remember laughing so much in church as we have through your time with us!!”…”We are stronger and better because of your teaching. Your encouragements and challenges gave us confidence. Thank you for the process and for making it all hugely entertaining.” (A.M. & P.J.W)
