Life Groups

Life Groups are a journey into the world of Christianity, exploring what is fact or fiction and a chance to observe, evaluate and even model on people who have been Christian for ages. These are safe places where you aren’t being judged and you will be able to question, raise your doubts, and challenge the Christian view point. We’re just ordinary people doing our best to figure out why we are here on earth, what is the purpose of our existence?

Life Groups meet at a variety of times, usually for about an hour and a half. There are groups that are just men’s or women’s groups, and most include couples and singles so there will be a group that suits you. Each group has its own character. Give me a call. If you’re interested and we can sort out where you are at, and find a group that suits you. It doesn’t cost, there is no obligation to stay, you will meet interesting people, and count on it, there Will Be No Pressure.

Hi, I’m Tom Eades.  I was born in Auckland in 1945. My younger days were fairly uneventful, with school, sport and the usual teenage pranks to fill in my time. I met Margaret in 1974 and we were married the following year. We have one son (Martin) who is married to a Swedish girl (Johanna) and they live in Sweden.

Both Margaret and I were teachers. Most of our teaching was in Wellington, where I was a principal at three schools. In holiday times, I have had a variety of part time jobs which include being a soldier (I got caught in ‘the ballot’), shop assistant, roof painter, office worker, factory labourer, farm hand, cleaner and electronic sign installer.

I have been a keen athlete (and still go for the occasional run), and competed with moderate success.

I have (along with Margaret) held leadership roles in my last two churches, and have been a believer all my life.

I’d be glad to chat about life groups at Holy Trinity: send me an email and tell me what’s on your mind at
