Church of the Saviour (COTS) has welcomed their new Priest-in-Charge, Reverend Shashikant Christian.
Having served in the church and mission services since 1987 both in India and New Zealand, Shashi arrived with his family in 2001. They have been with the Anglican church in New Zealand since 2002 and are thrilled to have this opportunity to be at COTS.
Shashi enjoys chai and conversations pertaining to worldviews and cultures, to explore their impact on our lives, society, economics, politics and faith, and loves to chat about his faith in Jesus. He is a teacher, and brings unique perspectives from varied cultural and faith backgrounds.
Speaking in local congregations as well as international conferences, Shashi has travelled extensively: India, Asia, Africa, North America, Europe and Australasia, lecturing on church history from a non-western perspective. He has a fascinating life story.
Shashi speaks to the congregations at COTS on most Sundays (both morning 9am & 11am and evening 7pm) as well as on Wednesday 9.30am.
