Andrew is our Senior Pastor (Priest in Charge) overseeing both Holy Trinity Doncaster and St. John’s Blackburn. He is married to Michelle and they have three young children. Andrew was a school teacher, then studied at Moore College and worked in Sydney for five years before moving to Melbourne, which they love. But more than that, Andrew loves teaching people about Jesus from the Bible and seeing them come to know Jesus and grow as followers of Jesus. To relax, Andrew enjoys spending time with the family, a good movie, sport with mates, cycling and swimming (& should probably do the latter two more often!).

Mark is married to Elissa and together, they have two daughters Emma and Lauren. In his leisure time, Mark hones his culinary skills by coming up with new and interesting dishes to feed the family.
