Who We Are


Minister: Rev. Gene Lawrence
In response to God's call, Gene, Mariapia, Dominique and Giovanna moved to Temuka in January 2017. Having previously lived in Timaru they are not unfamiliar with South Canterbury. Gene's heart is to see the good news of God shared with the Temuka Community. The family look forward to becoming involved in the community and its hopes and dreams.


Relief Minister: Rev. Bob Moore.  
Bob has had a wealth of experience in his ministry career and after moving from South Africa to New Zealand 6 years ago has been a fantastic part of the leadership team at Trinity.  To list all of Bob’s experience would mean that the internet would then be full, so suffice it to say that he has a wealth of knowledge with plenty of runs on the board and the church is grateful to have him.


Senior Elder: Jeanette Woodley. 
If you were looking for a local, Jeanette would be it.  From a dairy farm background at Clandeboye, herself and her husband George have been part of the Trinity landscape for many years but are still as active and involved as a couple of 20 year olds.  With a heart for people and a passion for the church, Jeanette does a fantastic job at organizing meetings and filling in all the gaps.
