Serving the Lord on Kangaroo Island

It was just over nine years ago that God opened the door and put the need for consistent, longer-term ministry on Kangaroo Island on our hearts and we’ve been here ever since.

A place of hidden beauty

In 2004 Jo and I moved to Karratha as young graduates starting our careers. We joined the local Anglican Church and were blessed by the BCA supported ministry of Les & Jenny Gaulton. Two years later we moved on, but we’re back, and took up where Les & Jenny left off, preaching the gospel in the West Pilbara.
