Chaplain Rev Adrian Tofts and Rev Michelle Tofts
Rev Tofts is a priest in the Anglican Church and a trained primary and secondary teacher. He also studied at St John’s Theological College in Auckland.
He joined our Nga Tawa staff in January 2023.
Prior to this Rev Tofts spent four years in Whanganui ministering in the church there. This included some youth work which utilised his previous study and experience as a youth pastor. Journeying with young people as they explore who they are, their passions and purpose, and their faith, is something he is deeply passionate about. As Chaplain, Adrian helps to nurture the spiritual life of students and integrate Nga Tawa’s special Anglican character into school life. He works closely with the Head of Chapel Prefect and Sacristans to plan Chapel services and special events and organises camps and events for students throughout the year. Email Rev Tofts here
