The Revd Pauline Grabham
Priest in Local Mission (retired)
Pauline was born in Nottinghamshire, England. She came to Australia aged 18 for a two-year working holiday and loved it so much she never went back.
After working as a secretary, then a full-time mother, in 1975 she auditioned for a children’s television program and spent the next five years as Buttons’ sidekick on “Buttons and Pauline” (NBN). This was followed by a 20-year career as a shopping centre manager.
Pauline is married to Graham and they have two adult children.
Pauline talks about her path to ministry: “Even though my family had no church connection I was drawn to God as a child. I went to various churches until I met my husband, whose mother attended St Philip’s Waratah. I went with her and found a connection with God that I had not known before. I drifted away from church-going as work became more time-consuming. Yet I was always aware that God was nudging me along, speaking to me in my quiet times. Eventually, when we moved to Stockton and began attending St Paul’s, I could not ignore God any more. I spoke to the bishop about my calling and he suggested I study to become a Priest in Local Mission. This began the most intense and exciting time of my life.”
