Joining the saints at St Augustine’s Neutral Bay–once more

We’re very pleased to say that I have accepted a position as an assistant minister at St Augustine’s Anglican Church, Neutral Bay, Sydney. I was a student minister at Neutral Bay in 2004-2005 and we very much enjoyed working in partnership with the rector, Craig Roberts. One of the present assistant ministers and his wife are our good friends David and Jacqui Ould. They are dearly loved at, and love, St Augustine’s, but after 9 years there, they have recently announced their intention to seek new ministry challenges and opportunities elsewhere. This will leave a staff vacancy at St Augustine’s at some point in 2012 or early 2013, which we will then take up.

We were prayerfully considering a few other ministry options, but decided that this position was the wisest choice. Not only will it be a great opportunity to proclaim Jesus and serve the saints at St Augustine’s, it is quite close to the centre of Sydney and will give me some flexibility if I am able to find any occasional or part-time work lecturing in biblical studies in any of the Sydney theological colleges (if you do happen to know of any such work, please let me know!).

In the interim from July until possibly December, we will be living with Bronwyn’s parents in North Richmond (North-West Sydney) and enjoying fellowship with our home church family at Kurrajong.

    Often we try to fit in with others by the way we speak. But God calls believers to be holy, not filthy, in our speech, even if it sounds strange to others.
