Shelley West – Community Pastor

shelley faceShelley is our Community Pastor here at Blockhouse Bay-which is a job that suits her ‘down to a t’. In her role Shelley helps the church engage with the wider community of the Bay, finding ways that the church and its congregation  can partner and serve, which means she has plenty of opportunity to meet and talk with people from all over the community

While this is her first full time role, Shelley has served in a few churches before  and during her time of  studying at Carey Baptist  College- including time at her home church in Manurewa Baptist, The Baptist Tabernacle,  Da Nang  Internation Community ( Vietnam) and Huntly Baptist where she spend a year as interim pastor.

Originally from Manurewa Shelley is a proud supporter of the Waikato Chiefs, and loves all sorts of  sports-though the hills of roads of Blockhouse Bay are not always cycle friendly. While very happy in New Zealand with its great people and beaches, she wouldn’t mind some more time overseas at some point and has dreams of a trip to the ancient places found in Europe and of completing a PHD before 50.

You can email her. She’d love to hear from you.
