About the event

- Faith and Hope in Midlife - 

A day for all interested to explore , refect and celebrate the significant transitions in life and faith.

Based on Anne Shave’s PhD research into the experiences of Presbyterian, Anglican and Catholic churchgoers, and her recently-published book Faith and Hope in Midlife: Reflecting on Churchgoers’ Experiences, this will be a day with time for interaction as well as a good chunk of quiet time for personal reflection. People of all ages are welcome to attend.

About your host:

Dr Anne Shave graduated with her doctorate in Theology from the University of Otago in 2018. Her research explored the experiences of Christians in midlife, within Catholic, Anglican and Presbyterian congregations in New Zealand. In 2019 Anne was a scholar in residence at Vaughan Park Anglican Retreat Centre in Auckland and also completed a short course in retreat direction and spiritual guidance at St Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre in Wales. Formerly a secondary-school English teacher, Anne is now employed part-time at Cashmere Presbyterian Church and also works as a tutor at disability support and service provider Hōhepa Canterbury. She is currently completing a post-graduate certificate in Ministry Supervision through Laidlaw College in Auckland.
