Richard – Senior Minister (richardfjames@me.com) 0417779363

I became Senior Minister 13th December 2020.
Born in Manly Hospital, grew up in the Manly Area. Married Judy my childhood sweetheart (met in kindergarten).
Together we have lived in Wollongong, Newtown, Northmead, Engadine, Vancouver (Canada), Forestville, Chatswood.
We have 3 gorgeous children who have produced 2 even more gorgeous grandsons.
It is awesome to be back on the Northern Beaches (at last!)
My life was dramatically changed just out of High School when I finally took Jesus at His word.
Jesus changes everything for anyone who knows him.
As a Christian minister I see the MAIN THING, is to keep the MAIN THING, the MAIN THING.
One word… JESUS.
I’d love to meet you, share about HIM, and get to know you.
Visit any Sunday 9.30am or call, SMS, email me anytime.

We are very fortunate to have Carole as our church secretary.

Her extensive background in the business world gives us an experienced manager in our church office.
