The Rev. Gayanne Frater

The Rev. Gayanne Frater

Gayanne is a priest whose borderless ministry continues to evolve. She ministered in a wide variety of rural and urban parish-based ministry positions before completing a Master of Counselling degree in 2012. Her dissertation research explored ways in which women’s spirituality, reflected in their metaphors of hope, support them during times of significant identity transition.    

She is now a Lecturer in the School of Public Health and Psychosocial Studies at AUT University, Auckland and is preparing to enrol on a doctoral programme.  

Describing herself as a 'closet artist', she loves to patchwork word and image together in ways that provoke questions, inspire growth and deepen spirituality.
