Lakes Team

Our Team

Senior Minister – Vacant


Annette Shorten is the Children and Family Minister at Lakes Anglican. Annette brings compassion and energy with a caring focus to younger generations. She runs our Playtime groups on Wednesday and Thursday mornings as well as overseeing the Sunday 9:30 service Sunday School. Annette can also be found at Lakes Grammar, an Anglican School running girls crew. Alongside her husband Matt ( Lakes Grammar senior school chaplain), they run our monthly youth service 628CREW. With three daughters, Annette spends her time managing both work and family life. Oh, she likes coffee.

Catherine Grabbi is our latest team member to come on board at Lakes Anglican. Catherine takes up the position of Office Administrator, becoming the welcoming first face for all who enter Lakes on Monday to Thursday. She brings a solid skill set in computing as well as multi-tasking and organisation.

Our Preaching Team is growing. At the 9:30 gathering, our preaching team is made up of Revd. Tim Waghorn, Revd. Matt Shorten, Revd. Dan Connor and Revd. Rob Barrie. They all bring their own style of preaching, but you can be assured it is biblically strong with an evangelical ethos.

We have an ever growing team that assist with Children and Family Ministries, Music, Bible Studies and so much more.

Alongside our Family Ministry is our caring for the elderly in Aged Care Facilities and other institutions. With a dedicated team, regular visits to Warnervale Gardens, Glenmere Hostel, Casuarina Grove, William Cape, Magnolia Manor, Masonic Village, Lorretto Gardens and Hakea Aged Care Facility ensure God’s Word is heard in our area.

SRE is taught at Tuggerawong, Woongarrah, Kanwal and Gorokan by a dedicated team.

There is much happening at Lakes, come and be a part of our growing family, focussed on Christ our Saviour. Below is a small portion of our expanding team at Lakes, made up of people from both our traditional and contemporary worship groups.
