Clay Nelson, Associate Priest

Clay is an Anglican priest trained and ordained in the U.S.  He emigrated to Aotearoa New Zealand in August 2005. Shortly after arriving he began his ministry at St Matthew's using his background in communications and web development to develop an "online virtual church." He has two adult daughters, Sarah and Elissa, and six grandchildren.  He is married to Lynette Harrison, an artist and mental health nurse.

There is only one thing for which I can thank George Bush.  If it weren’t for his war in Iraq and his assault on the Constitution, I would’ve never found New Zealand, St Matthew’s or my wife.

if I had known St Matthew's was here and how much I would love my ministry here, I would've come sooner! It has been said that faith is its own reward. And how.
