Peter’s Story

I am in charge of keeping St Alfred’s healthy and focused on Jesus.

I grew up as a Roman Catholic but drifted away as a teenager. It was more fun playing cricket and football with mates. In my 20’s I began to meet Christians who were intelligent and could answer my questions about God and the Bible. I was especially helped by a Christian community in Switzerland called L’Abri. I eventually became a Christian myself and after a few years teaching English in a secondary school I went to Ridley College and eventually sensed a call to full-time ministry. I think St Alfred’s is a great church and I am thankful to God he has brought me and my family here.
