Rev Tim Lloyd

Welcome from the Vicar

A big welcome to you. Thank you for taking the time to look through our website. I hope you find it helpful. If you need further information, please feel free to contact us via the contact details within this website.

By way of introduction, my name is Tim Lloyd, and I started as vicar of Holy Trinity Forest Lake on the 1st February 2015, a church family we belonged to as parishioners between 1998 and 2007. Prior to ministry preparation within the Anglican Church, I had a career in the New Zealand Dairy Industry in a cross section of roles over a seventeen year period. However, I left this in order to study for a year at the then Bible College of New Zealand. I subsequently attended St. John’s College as part of my Anglican formation, and studied theology at Auckland University.

More recently I have been privileged to be a chaplain within the Selwyn Foundation and one of the priests within the Parish of St. John, Te Awamutu, with a focus on the wonderful community of St. Saviour’s in Pirongia.

I am married to Julie and we have four boys ranging from early teens to early twenties.

Over the years we have found Holy Trinity to have a wonderful family-like atmosphere as we praise and worship God together through a range of service styles with an Anglican flavour. I hope this will be your experience too.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:25)

Rev. Tim Lloyd

Our faith is based on the Historical Creeds, the Holy Bible and the Prayer Books. Our faith is a living faith as we believe in the living God. We therefore expect that God will be present in our lives, in our worship and in all our activities. We expect to be led by God and we expect to see healing, reconciliation and peace amongst our people. We freely acknowledge other Christians as our brothers and sisters and we share in the world-wide mission of the Church.
