Judith Dufour is our Pastoral Chaplain she offers pastoral care to the church community from St John’s Church, Wellington, wherever they may be – at home, in hospital or in care.
I was born, brought up and have lived in Wellington all my life. I have been a member of St John’s, from Baptism to Confirmation and have held a variety of roles. I was pastoral co-ordinator for many years, but just over a year ago I sensed a call of God to become a chaplain. It became clear that God was calling me to deepen my commitment. The new learning community, supported by Rural Ministries, enabled me to explore my vocation and has helped me through my chaplaincy training.
