Rev Dr Rod Pattenden has been minister at Adamstown since June 2012, and now reaches a well-deserved retirement at the end of February 2022. Adamstown Uniting Church has been most fortunate to have had Rod as our leader during this 10 years.
Rod has promoted the links between faith and creativity and the call to live a full life. He maintains an approach to life and faith that values curiosity, wonder and gratefulness.
His leadership has deepened the Church’s involvement in the arts in a way that celebrates life and engages in justice making. He has a playful sense of humour and a hopeful passion for life.
Rev Nerida Drake and Rev Garry Derkenne are providing ministry as we await the appointment of a new minister.
