Archdeacon, the Ven. Linda King stepping down

E te whānau a te Karaiti,


Greetings and peace to you all. I’m writing to let you know that our Archdeacon of Eastern Bay of Plenty and Lakes, the Venerable Linda King, has stepped down from her role as Archdeacon from 23 June 2024.  Linda will continue in her parish commitments as Vicar of the Parish of Whakatane.


I am very grateful for Linda’s service to our Diocese as your Archdeacon and am pleased that although Linda is stepping down from this role that the Parish of Whakatane will continue to benefit from Linda’s caring, strategic and enthusiastic leadership.


At this stage I won’t be seeking to make an appointment of a new Archdeacon as we are in the midst of finalising the development of our Diocesan Strategic Plan and we will look to any future appointments of Archdeacons to align with the needs of the Diocese in light of the strategy for the future.

Yours in Christ,

The Right Reverend Andrew Hedge

Bishop of Waiapu
