Rob & Michelle Edwards

Serving with BCA since May 2020

After being without a minister for 10 months, the Strathfieldsaye Community Church welcomed Rob Edwards and his family to the parish in late May 2020.

Rob is no stranger to Strathfieldsaye, as previous minister Steve Weickhardt used Rob’s expertise as the Childrens and Youth Minister in neighbouring South East Bendigo to help run a number of holiday programs over the years.

Rob and his wife Michelle have been involved in ministry for decades. They first served in Melbourne before moving to Bendigo in 2004. It was in Bendigo that they welcomed their three boys Nathan, Josh and Pete.

The Edwards' August Prayer Points Please pray for our relationships with the people of Strathfieldsaye, that we will be able to form new friendships and have opportunities to speak of the hope we have in Christ. Please also pray for increased ways to serve people.
