Who's Who

Rector - The Revd Karl Przywala
 (pronounced PR-VOW-ER) was born in Birmingham, England in 1963; having spent his thirties living in Australia, he is now set to spend his fifties in Canada. He was at Durham University in the 1980s and trained for ordination whilst in Australia. He was formerly a Church of England Lay Reader and so knows the value of lay ministry. Karl finds art, music, film and literature can be both relaxing and stimulating; recently, he’s been drawn toward reading and watching historical and crime fiction.

Karl sees the challenge and privilege of being entrusted with leadership at Holy Trinity as “the highlight of my ministry to date.” Biblical preaching and teaching has always been at the heart of his ministry and his prayer for Holy Trinity Church is that we will continue to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2nd Peter 3:18).
