Julie is happily married to Andrew and has inherited his two children, forming their own blended family.  Growing up in Darwin and Queensland means she’s never too far from a beach or an outdoor adventure, exploring new places, tasting new flavours, reading and enjoying time with friends, family and their pet puppy.

 

Catherine Rae – Children & Families Pastor
Catherine has been part of All Saints since she was a child – that’s probably where her passion for wanting children to feel loved and welcomed at church and to know they are loved by God comes from!  For over 30 years she has been involved in leadership in different areas of children’s ministry such as after school programmes for primary school children, playgroup, holiday programmes, our kids Learning Time (KLT) on Sundays and Christian Religious Education (CRE) in the local primary school.  Catherine is married to Peter, whom she met at youth group at All Saints, and they have 2 teenage boys.  Her other interests include reading, needlework and dancing.
