James Macbeth – Minister

Michelle and I arrived in January 2015 with three kids – Angus, Darcy Ellen and Rob.  After three years in the Sutherland Shire at Gymea Anglican and almost seven years at St Bede’s, Drummoyne, this has been a return to familiar ground. Michelle and I grew up in the area, we were married down the road at Pymble and I taught for six years at Barker College at Hornsby. We are really excited to be part of such an engaging, energetic group of people, all keen to make sense of life with Jesus as Lord. Our family have been made to feel at home and I can promise a warm welcome if you visit us on a Sunday.
