Our Team

Reverend Michael Crichton

Interim Senior Minister

Michael joined us in October 2020 to lead our church whilst we were seeking a new Rector for our parish. With plans to go to India changed, Michael has now accepted the role to be the new rector of St Clement’s, Mosman! Michael is married to Karen and has three adult kids who have “flown the coop”. He has a keen interest in pigeon racing, but an even greater interest in helping people to understand God’s word and encouraging people as they read their Bibles to ask, “What have you been learning from God’s word lately?”
