Nathan de Senna

Priest Associate
I was born in Santiago, Chile. My parents were missionaries there for the Salvation Army. One of my happiest childhood memories is going to a football match in Brazil with 105,000 other people. It was such an incredible atmosphere! As a kid I also lived in Bolivia and Brazil, and came back to New Zealand when I was fourteen years old. 

I was six years old when I made a decision to become a Christian. However, as the Salvation Army don't baptise, I got baptised when I was eighteen years old. I started attending St Paul's Symonds Street in my early twenties and this was the first Anglican Church I became a part of. 

In my free time I like watching sports (especially football and baseball). I also like watching movies. I should exercise more than I do, so that's something I'll work on this coming year. Also, next year I want to learn how to play the guitar.

While here at All Saints, I want to get into as much as possible and learn as much as possible. I am looking forward to meeting people in a pastoral context. And I hope I can be a help to Andrew and Scott during my time here!

Nathan was appointed Priest Associate in July 2020.
