At New Lambton Uniting Church all members are welcome to serve in the ministry of the church. We do, however have a ministry team that helps to bring continuity to the life of the congregation. Our ministry team is comprised of a Minister of the Word, Rev. Niall McKay and Bec Westphal, a Childrens and Youth Worker. The team is ably supported by the hard work of many in the congregation using individuals skills and gifts in various areas to create meaningful worship, active social engagements, pastoral support and undertake numerous administrative functions.
Niall is an ordained minister of the Uniting Church who has a range of experience in congregations and youth/young adults ministry in Australia and abroad. He is committed to the surprising (and often challenging) message of the Gospel, to a deeply reflective and thoughtful faith, and to helping people realise the way in which the Christian discipleship offers an alternative to the empty busy-ness of modern life. Niall has recently submitted his PhD thesis and hopes that the markers will be kind to him.
Bec has significant experience working with children, both in church settings and other contexts. She is passionate about forming fun and meaningful relationships with young people, and works to help them connect the faith story to the challenges and joys they face in their day-to-day lives.
