rev Brian Heath
Senior Minister

Brian has been the Senior Minister at St. John’s since 2009. He is married to Sue and has three adult daughters who keep him on his toes.

Prior to ministry Brian worked for the Department of Community Services in child protection. He loves bringing the good news of Jesus to bear on people’s lives.

Before a major accident early in 2019 he enjoyed riding his bike to near and far places. He still enjoys a great coffee, watching the Sydney Swans and having a dip in the ocean - all preferably with family or friends.
