The Dean of Auckland preaches at St Albans Cathedral It was a joy to welcome The Very Reverend Anne Mills, Dean of Auckland, as our preacher on Sunday 23 July. Dean Anne is on sabbatical leave and she and her husband Chris have been travelling in the UK. It was very good to welcome them to our Cathedral. In reflecting on Jesus’ parables, Dean Anne brought us meaningful reflections from Maori culture. We are sure it is the first time we have had two women from Aotearoa New Zealand preside and preach in our Cathedral! Her sermon can be heard on our YouTube channel. Watch the service here Please note that Dean Anne's sermon starts from 19 minutes in.
