A Radical Theology of Baptism     by Rev Jenny Dawson

It is a readable mix of history, theology and liturgy featuring research in our Parish and Diocese and in the story of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.


"In this comprehensive and in depth work Jenny argues for the profound transformation that baptism actually promises and the transfiguration that we can expect to see as a result of baptismal discipleship in our communities, political realities and cultures,"  David Moxon, Bishop of Waikato, Archbishop of the NZ Dioceses.

Parish Priests: For the sake of the Kingdom

Parish Priests by Robin Greenwood

By Robin Greenwood. Some reviews -

‘Drawing from practical experience, Dr Greenwood provides a way of revaluing the work of the parish priest. Expanding the concept of episcope as a metaphor for the very nature and work of the church, he re-imagines God’s call towards a collaborative Church.’
Malcolm Grundy, Director of the Foundation for Church Leadership, UK

‘From the author of Practising Community, an experience-based theologically sound navigational guide for those charged with leading the Church into God’s future.’
Jenny Dawson, ministry developer and parish priest, Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia
Canon Robin Greenwood is Vicar of Monkseaton in Whitley Bay. He was previously Ministry Adviser in the Church in Wales, and earlier was Director of Ministry in the Diocese of Chelmsford. He is an accomplished author whose works include Transforming Priesthood, The Ministry Team Handbook and Local Ministry.
