Our Team

Meet the Anglican Missions staff

We’re a small team making a big impact.

Anglican Missions represents the Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia. Our work spans the world and so does our team.

Our NZ based work is done from the Anglican House, a renovated heritage building in the heart of Wellington’s Central Business District. Our Fiji based operations happen from the Moana Anglican Services & Teaching building in Suva.

Our Staff

Michael Hartfield

National Director

Michael has been with Anglican Missions for four years, becoming the National Director in January 2020. While in a previous life Michael was a town planner, he has worked in the overseas development and humanitarian sector for a number of years – five years for the Council for International Development (CID) and nine years at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT).

Michael is ambitious for Anglican Missions and the role it is playing in the world, and loves his job as it enables him to live out his faith. Michael was ordained by the Anglican Church in 2020.

Outside work, he is likely to be with his family; in their wonderful garden; listening to music in his (in)famous basement; at St Hilda’s Anglican Church in Island Bay (Wellington); or generally getting into all that Wellington has to offer.

Mark Mitchell

Humanitarian and Development Manager

Mark manages our humanitarian and development programme across the Pacific and Africa. He has worked in and around the humanitarian sector for 25 years with different organisations and has responded to a range of natural disasters and conflicts across the world. He is passionate about working with communities to strengthen their resilience to disasters. He believes that the church is critical in supporting development and being active in meeting the needs of those affected by disasters.

He spends his free time with his wife, working on their house, taking the dog (Kea) for walks in the hills around Wellington or drinking coffee with friends.

Karen Chute

Projects Manager

Karen is our Projects Manager and is based in Suva, Fiji with her husband and two children. She works closely with the Diocese of Polynesia to ensure that our project work in the Pacific is carried out with the needs of those communities in mind.

Sarah Muller

Projects and Communications Officer

Sarah started at Anglican Missions on what she thought would be a temporary basis, writing reports, but has stayed on as Projects and Communications Officer. Her current role supports the development and monitoring of Anglican Missions’ many projects and appeals.

Sarah is a Third Order Franciscan, and is glad to be part of an organisation where God’s call to love our neighbour is the reason for the work we do. When not at work, she likes fixing things, going slow, and savouring her husband’s cooking.

Glen Williams

Finance Manager

Glen is our Finance Manager, with responsibility for day to day transaction processing, meeting our statutory reporting requirements, and preparing short to long-term budgets.

He enjoys being able to share our financial story and achievements in ways that meet the needs of our board, parishes and partners. Glen is passionate about the development of new partnerships with other aid and development organisations.

In his spare time, he participates a weekly 5km Park Run (he may walk these so don’t tell), follows football and enjoys documentaries on football clubs and 70s/80s pop groups.

Kris Singh

Marketing and Communications Manager

He enjoys playing and producing music, gaming, good food, a good YouTube rabbit hole and spending time with his wife Vanessa and dog Rooney.

Olivia Hartfield

Projects Officer

Olivia started with Anglican Missions as an intern and became the Development and Financial Assistant in 2021. Olivia now works as a Projects Officer, running our intern programme, supporting our Mapping Project and Schools Project, and supporting a group of Bishop-appointed representatives to raise the profile of overseas mission through OMTP (Overseas Mission Tikanga Pākehā).

Olivia is also in her final year of a Development Studies degree at Victoria University of Wellington. In her free time, she loves reading, being crafty, visiting art galleries, and tending to her sourdough starter.

Rowena Bonne

Office Administrator

Rowena is our office administrator and our first point of contact if you phone, email or visit Anglican Missions.

On the weekends she ventures from her home in Karori with her husband and dog to visit the Botanical Gardens. You may also see her zipping around on her bicycle, usually heading towards catchups with friends or for a ride around the bays.
