Minister (Teaching Elder)


Rev. Peter Williamson

Peter, his wife Michelle, and their four girls, Isabelle, Amy, Bianca and Emilia moved from the hustle and bustle of Sydney to beautiful Ulverstone at the beginning of 2015.

Peter’s passions are his family, chickens, large bonfires, fishing, good coffee, but most of all the forgiveness and peace found in Jesus and his saving death and resurrection for us.

If you’d like to find out more about this driving passion, come and join us on Sundays at 10am.
