Our staff team is led by Andrew Williamson, who was inducted as Senior Minister at BPC in July 2015.
Prior to coming to BPC, Andy (photo-centre) had been lecturer at the Talua Ministry Training Centre in Vanuatu since 2000. Andy’s Master of Theology thesis at Moore Theological College was on Karl Barth and his PhD thesis was on Paul’s ethics. His wife, Rosemary is doing the writing now, producing Bible studies in the Bislama language of Vanuatu. Andy and Rosemary have two girls, Leila and Sarah.
Our Youth Director
Chris Gillan (photo-right) serves as the Youth Director at Beecroft Presbyterian Church. Chris has previously completed a Ministry Training Apprenticeship and loves sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and the freedom He brings. On his day off you will find him at the beach or reading a book. If you want to get in touch, you can send an email or find him on Facebook.
Our FES Students Mark Lawson (photo-left above) is our Field Education Scheme (FES) Student this year. Mark is married to Julianne, and has three children; Victoria, Nathaniel and Georgiana. Mark has worked as a lawyer for almost 20 years. He came to Christ in his early 20’s as a result of reading “The Pilgrim’s Progress” for a course at University. He is currently studying at Christ College, while maintaining his practice in Law. You will generally find Mark running our bookstall after the 10:30 service.
The Ministry Team is never just the paid staff. We believe that Jesus has given every Christian the gifts and opportunities to serve (minister) to their fellow Christians and to the community around them. We see this happening at BPC every week!
