Meet the pastoral team

Rev Mike Paget

Rector
Chaplain – UTS & Sydney University

Phone: 02 9211 3496     Email: mike.paget@barneys.org.au

Mike leads the teaching ministry and staff team, and directs the overall strategy for the church. Raised an atheist, Mike was surprised when he became persuaded of the rational, historical basis for the claims of Jesus Christ, and the compelling beauty of the Christian story. Since then, he has picked up degrees in physics, theology and education, and worked in a coal mine in central Queensland and a technology firm based in Silicon Valley.

Mike’s passion is to help explorers find a home at Barneys, consider all the evidence and step out in a new spiritual journey. He runs (and cooks a mean curry for) our regular Simply Christianity course on Thursday nights.

Mike is married to Fiona, and has four amazing kids. He’s totally sold on living in the inner city, though would be even happier if Bondi Beach backed onto Broadway.
