In November 2014, Reverend Michael Pailthorpe was welcomed in St Philip’s Anglican Church as it’s new Rector for the Anglican Parish of Bungendore. Michael and his family - wife Chloe, and children, Meg, Jack & William have moved into the Rectory adjoining the church and are ministering full-time in the communities of Bungendore and surrounds.
Michael and Chloe met in 1999 whilst in Bible College and they married in 2001. Michael is an ordained Priest and holds degrees in Theology and Philosophy and his ministry experience has been in Sydney, Bathurst, Grenfell and now Bungendore. Michael & Chloe have hearts for discipling, mentoring, building relationships and strengthening communities. As a family, they enjoy being a part of the local community and they feel very blessed to be here.
Mike and Chloe are currently receiving coaching and training through the Cascade Network.
Together, with a wonderful Parish Council and very committed local leaders, ministers, and volunteers they are a part of discerning the Holy Spirit's leading and nurture for the future.
All leadership is required to have a Working With Children Check and undergo Safe Ministry Training.
