The Questions

 

David started his ministry in the Pilbara region in North West Australia before going on to minister in various parishes in the Sydney Diocese. He served as Director of the Department of Evangelism from 1993 to 2004. He then took up the position of Senior Minister at St Philip’s York Street in Sydney. In 2009, David was appointed the first Director of The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid. Anglican Aid delivers life transforming aid to some of the most vulnerable people in the world, as well as needy people in our own communities here in Sydney.

Every year, David undertakes an ‘extreme challenge’ to promote Anglican Aid’s work. Past challenges have included riding to the Sunshine Coast and back with a small team, surfing 100 beaches in ten days and reading the Bible in all 269 parishes of the Sydney Diocese. This year, the ‘Rivers of Justice and Mercy’ Challenge is seeing David paddle the rivers and other water ways of the Sydney Diocese in partnership with different parishes.
David is married to Helen. Together they have three children and ten grandchildren. In his spare time, David loves watching sports and movies. He’s enjoys surfing and many other things starting with the letter ‘s’, including sleeping, swimming, snorkelling and South Africa.
