Simeon Hawkins

A series of three weekly talks by Simeon Hawkins on the St Paul’s Symonds Street stained glass, including Q&As and printed notes.

Over wine and nibbles, Simeon will tell the stories behind our windows, explain their relation to our historic heritage as Auckland’s first church, and shed some light on their biblical significance.

Plus, he’ll reveal a few hidden gems that few know are there. It’ll be a fascinating three weeks of talks as we launch into the STAINED series of events.

Simeon Hawkins was a history teacher in the UK and holds a graduate diploma in theology, specialising in biblical and church history. He is currently studying a history masters degree through Auckland University on the first 100 years of St Paul’s Church and is familiar with every stone, plank and pane of this historic building which has been his home since 2011.

As a veteran youth leader and teacher, Simeon brings history alive in fun and accessible ways through his incredible passion to re-tell the stories that have shaped our beloved church for the past 176 years.
