Blessed to be a Blessing and Growing Disciples of Jesus sums up the DNA of the parish.

These two mottos have served as a beacon for decisions in the past and continue to
influence our thinking as we now explore what it means to be missionaries 
in our community.

Our Church Team

One of the goals of the Greymouth & Kumara Anglican Parish is “every member ministry”.  We work with people to identify areas of giftedness and availability to find places of service.  So our Church Team is actually Everyone!  However, there are a few people who are involved on a regular basis for more than 15 hours/wk.  These people and their roles are described below:


Marge Tefft (Kingston)


Marge has been vicar since 2008.  She is married to Robin Kingston. She has a passion for sung worship and the Scriptures.


Robin Kingston
