The St Peter’s parish at Weston Creek recently welcomed its new rector Reverend Nick Colyer.
Nick and his wife Sarah, along with their three children, have come from Springwood in the Blue Mountains where Nick served as senior assistant minister for almost four years.
The previous rector of St Peter’s, the Reverend Jason Page, unexpectedly passed away in November 2020 and since that time the Reverend Dr Guerin Tueno has been acting rector.
The Right Reverend Dr Mark Short officiated at Nick’s induction service, on Saturday 16 October.
While numbers were limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, others watched a YouTube livestream of the service. Area Dean, Reverend Dave McLennan, Pastor Stephen Dunne from Awaken Church, Kambah, and Dave Edmondson, St Peter’s Warden, officially welcomed Nick during the service.
Several other members of the parish were in attendance including Reverend Gerald Farleigh, a former rector of St Peter’s Weston. Among those tuning in online were members of St Peter’s, members of Springwood Anglican, and Nick and Sarah’s family and friends.
