Farewell to The Rev’d Jan Tapper

For fourteen years Jan Tapper has served as Chaplain to Waiapu House in Havelock North.

Having decided to retire, Jan was farewelled at a simple but moving service in the Chapel of

the Good Shepherd.


Attended by residents, colleagues, and friends the service, presided over by Archdeacon

David van Oeveren, gave thanks for Jan’s faithful ministry and released her to begin a new

season in her life.


In his reflection, Alister Hendery spoke of how relationship is central to Christian life and

how the heart of Jan’s ministry with the Waiapu House community has been all about

relationships of loving care.
