Get to know us a little here, and you'll be able to put some names to faces when you first visit St Luke's.
Dave Rogers, Senior Minister
Dave has led our church & leadership team since 2010. He's husband to Meredith, dad to Billy & Isabel & Charlie, and loves Clovelly, good coffee & getting in the water down at the beach. Dave worked in IT before studying theology at Moore College. He also enjoys being chaplain to Randwick Rugby Club.
‘I was privileged to grow up knowing about Jesus, was convicted by the evidence for Jesus as a teenager, and I’m still discovering more of Jesus’ kindness to me each day.’
Mark Taylor, Director of Kids & Youth
Mark joined our growing church in 2014 to coordinate our activities for kids and youth, and their families. He became a follower of Jesus when he was young and is passionate to see children and young people get to know Jesus too. Mark and his wife Larissa have three kids, Isaac, Imogen and Caitlin. Mark used to coordinate all of the 'web stuff' for Toyota Australia, before training at Moore College. Growing up on the NSW South Coast meant Mark had no choice but to love the beach, and pretty much any sport.
Our new administrator is starting soon.
Community Group leaders
Much of the real action at St Luke’s happens in our Community Groups. We’re so thankful for our Community Group leaders who care for these little communities within our church community, who rally the troops, and who help chart the future for our church as a whole.
WARDENS AND PARISH COUNCIL
As an Anglican church, we elect representatives each February/March to help us pursue our vision. These include a 'Parish Council' who govern our finances and property, and Wardens who administer them. They are important roles and we have been well served. You can read about their responsibilities here.
Safe Ministry - We love children and are committed to keeping them safe. Anyone working with children (paid or volunteer) are screened and undertake regular training. We have a Safe Ministry representative and follow a Safe Ministry Policy as part of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. If you ever have any concerns, you can contact them via the Abuse Hotline on 1800 774 945.
Domestic Violence - At the October 2017 session of its Synod, the Anglican Diocese of Sydney published a Provisional Policy to help all our churches be places safe from violence.
