After spending many years leading and working in Youth Ministry Paul was ordained as an Anglican priest in 2013. Paul previously gained a degree in Information Technology and worked in that field for ten years at the University of Melbourne, however ministry remained central to his heart and calling.
Paul’s main role is to lead the English language ministry at St Mark’s, Templestowe and to support the youth ministry at both St Mark’s and St Timothy’s. Paul is married to Anna with three daughters and loves to have a kick of the footy and watch the Hawthorn Football Club when he can.
Revd Ivy Wong was ordained as an Anglican priest in 2010, she has experience in different Churches. From 2015 onwards she started to serve in St Timothy’s Bulleen. Her main role is to serve in the Chinese congregation, but she is also involved in Children ministry. She is a registered spiritual director at Wellspring Centre so she is able to help parishioners to discern their situation and help them to face their challenges.
