Rev. Caleb Hardie

Rev. Caleb Hardie began his ministry at Albany Presbyterian in 2018.   He is married to Deborah and they have four children Tolstoy, Caspian, Ambrosia and Estonia.

Caleb grew up in Auckland with Christian ministry running strongly in the family. His parents are Presbyterian Ministers and served together at St Stephens In Christchurch and more recently at St George’s Takapuna and his brother is also a Minister, serving as the Chaplain at Saint Kentigern School. Caleb studied at the Bible College of New Zealand, where he majored in Christian Education and at Otago University where he completed a Bachelor of Arts in Education, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Ministry.  He has also trained as a Primary and Intermediate School Teacher.

Since his Ordination in 2002, Caleb has ministered at Cashmere Hills Presbyterian, Saint Kentigern College and School, and Epsom Presbyterian before moving to the North Shore.  Caleb believes that the Gospel is always relevant and that God desires the fullness of life for all people.  This can be experienced as we seek to live in unity together with our diversity intact - as Christ intended. Church is a wonderful place to experience multicultural and intergenerational community and to glimpse the way God is at work in our lives. Caleb’s ministry is inclusive and his preaching is grounded in Biblical teachings that make room for stories to be told including our own. When he’s is not thinking about ministry he is thinking about how to improve his golf!
