The Faces of Sydney Life Church

Smiling Businessman


Senior and Founding Pastors

Ps Tom and Ps Barbara planted and have faithfully been serving Sydney Life Church as the Senior Pastors for 19 years. Ps Tom is a fiery Scotsman preacher with an inspiring passion for the Word. Ps Barbara has been a constant and reassuring presence at Sydney Life Church where her discernment and quiet strength have helped lay the bedrock of the ministry. 
Ps Toms loves football (soccer to some) and has a soft spot for anything covered in chocolate.
Ps Barbara enjoys all things British from Liberty to Call the Midwife. She's an incredible cook and makes a cracking roast and lemon meringue pie, to name just a few. Ps Tom and Barbara are proud grandparents to 6 grandchildren

Young Businessman


Operations Manager

Wilhelm (Vim to those that know him) is the Operations Manager of Sydney Life Church which basically means, he keeps the wheels on the bus! If it's broken he can fix it, if it's needed he can build it and if it's regulatory he on it! He's married to Kirsty with whom he shares 2 gorgeous kids. Besides what he does for Sydney Life Church he is also a full-time business owner, so he is a very busy man. He loves Biltong (hint hint) and a good braai (bbq) with friends.
