OUR RECTOR – FR ANDREW EATON
I came to Wallsend with my wife Monica and two girls in February 2017 having ministered in the Diocese of Bendigo in rural Victoria for 6 years.
I completed a Masters in Divinity and Advanced Diploma in Ministry at the University of Divinity in Melbourne, after previously studying a Bachelor of Arts and a Diploma in Golf. I have an interest in Girardian theory and non-violence, ecumenism, liturgy, and I am an aspirant to a new Anglican Marian order – the Sodality of Mary Mother of Priests.
I love digging deeper into the scriptures and exploring how following Jesus transforms our lives so that we can be part of the transformation of the world.
OUR CHILDREN’S & FAMILY MINISTER – MR MATTHEW COUCH
The community of families that attend St Luke’s was a major part of why Miranda, Joshua, and I have made this parish our home. Participating in a Eucharistic service as a family can be wonderful, yet if we’re honest we parents also need space to breathe and grow in our own faith, at peace in the knowledge that our children are being nourished… and occupied!
