Our Minister

Reverend Andrew GilliesReverend Andrew Gillies 

I became a minister in 1997 and have served at the congregations of Tannum Sands and Gladstone, and Clermont and Capella before coming to St Stephen’s Toowoomba.

My passion is for preaching, worship and teaching. I also have a love of children’s ministry. My theology is essentially traditional or conservative, but I am not offended by those who hold differing views to my own. I try hard to create room for others. I have also been a contracted voluntary school chaplain.

I have been married to Heather since 2007 and we have two sons, Eli and Parker, and a daughter, Ivy. Heather is a fine singer with a background in both opera and musical theatre. She also directed the St Stephen’s Choir up until the end of 2011. Both Heather and I have worked as school teachers.
