Meet The Pastor
Anglesea is an amazing place and we live among a beautiful community of people. In 2017 God called Kathy and I to serve in Anglesea leaving behind our home of twenty-five years in Melbourne and a career as a full-time post-doctoral senior scientist.
Prior to leaving Melbourne Michael formed and served as pastor to “Chapel”, a faith community that formed from the weekly community meal “DinnerTonite” at NewHope. Michael has also served as a hospital chaplain, crisis counsellor, completed formal theological study and was ordained by the Baptist Union of Victoria in October, 2018.
We have been welcomed with such love and are passionate to share the same love with all who visit or call Anglesea home.
We look forward to welcoming you to Anglesea.
