were used to the full – as was his understanding of human nature.
“He offered to his people in all these parishes strong leadership, exemplary pastoral
diligence and carefully prepared worship, and thoughtful and stimulating preaching.
He had the highest ideals of the nature of ministry, and was assiduous and untiring
as he strove to achieve the goals that he set himself. He drove himself close to
breaking point at times. The true welfare of his people was close to his heart and he
put vast amounts of time and energy into his work as pastor. Arthur’s ministry was
appreciated in all his parishes; and the man – and his wife – were loved by the people.”

MANSELL, Rev Graham  P.                BSc., BD., Dip.AgSc., Dip.Min.
b. 1955
w. Janet McKenzie m. 1987
Brought up in Karaka near Pukekohe and attended the local Methodist Church.
Attended Papakura High School and graduated Dux in 1976. After completing his BSc he studied for a
Diploma in Agricultural Science at Massey University in 1977 then went on to work as a Soil Scientist for
the Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries for six years.
He grew in faith under the Rev John Niven while attending St Alban's Church Palmerston North, playing
the piano for the worship team.
Studied at the Bible College Auckland before returning to Palmerston North to take up the position of Lay
Pastor at Milsom Combined Church. It was very much a sense of falling on to his feet there with a group of
people from across three denominations who had decided to work together instead of competeing against
one another. Their strong team ethos suited Graham who had a strong belief in body ministry and the
importance of harnessing the gifts that people had. While at Milsom Graham received a strong sense of
call to work as an ordained Minister within the Presbyterian Church.

Graham taught Bible in Schools at two schools during his time in Stratford, facilitated the Alpha program,
chaired the Stratford Ministers Association for several years, and was Moderator of Taranaki Presbytery for
one year. His skills in drama were useful for children's talks, all age worship services and some more dramatised
sermons. His friendly laid back style was appreciated by many, expecially the younger members of the
Ellesmere Co-Operating Parish  ChP  May 2001
Graham worked with Boy's Brigade at Dunsandel, running Alpha and other such courses, working with
Ellesmere churches in youth work, taking three classes of Bible in Schools each week, as well as two services
most Sundays. His involment with grieving families was always greatly appreciated. Graham was also an
active member of Presbytery, being a member of the Presbytery Ministry Committee and assisting
congregations at Halkett and Akaroa. Resigned from Ellesmere in 2005 suffering from exhaustion.
Minister within the Bounds ChP 11 Dec 2005
He spent the next year working on a strawberry farm, landscaping and labouring before becoming employed
as a Funeral Director and developing a vocation as a Funeral Celebrant. To keep himself fit he biked 30km
three times a week. It was on one of these rides that he suffered a fatal heart attack.

b. 1856
w. (1) Mary Jane King m. 26.1.1884 d. 27.12.1884 after birth of stillborn daughter 22.12.1884
w. (2) Agnes Pashby of Kaiapoi d. 1889 aged 26 years. Interred at Kaiapoi 1.9.1889
w. (3) Mary Byrne in Sydney, who predeceased him.
There is no record of children by these marriages.
Missionary - New Hebrides (Vanuatu)  unordained - mechanical engineer. He was an elder of
Trinity Church Timaru, and was appointed in 1892 as assistant to Dr Lamb to maintain machinery
at Dip Point Hospital on Ambrim, at the time a widower.  He resigned ill in 1893; but was
reappointed in 1895 with Mary Mansfield.  During Dr Lamb’s absence in 1897 he and his wife
bore the burden of the work.  Early in 1899 he returned to NZ with an injured eye, and later resigned;
accepted with regret.
In 7.1921, after the death of Mary Mansfield,  he was appointed by the John G. Paton Fund to hold
the Paama station of the Victorian Church for 2 years, relieving Rev M. Frater. He was appointed
locum tenens on North Ambrim on 1.7.1924 until a Missionary could be found for this station.
(It was said that though elderly, he was strong & vigorous.)  He established a station at Wuro,
Craig Cove. He suffered two bouts of blackwater fever between 1925-1926, he was nursed back to
health by Mr and Mrs William Bowie and the disease was to kill William Bowie.  On 17.11.1927
the Assembly granted him the right to baptise and to celebrate the sacraments, although he
declined ordination. The Mission station at Wuro was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in June 1929.
Last visit to Ambrym October-November 1929. Retired March 1930 after Assembly.
Although known as a person with very fixed views and opinions on how things should be done
and never reticent about voicing those opinions regardless of the injury to others or himself, he
nevertheless served with devotion and earnest purpose for these two terms.
Died  3.6.1930 Akaroa NZ. Interred 5.6.1930 at Kaiapoi in the same plot as Agnes Mansfield.
Agnes Mansfield and her unnamed daughter are also listed on her father's gravestone at Addington Cemetery.
