Meet our Parish   Team

With the leadership of The Rev'd Jan Crombie, a number of other Clergy and of course the office staff, the Parish Team contribute an extensive range of skills and Christian service to the life of the Kenmore Brookfield Parish.

 The Rev'd Jan Crombie

Rector

I have been parish priest of this faith community for two years, and ordained for 21 years. I love being part of the people here as we explore together how to live out the teaching of Jesus Christ.  My other passions are family, dogs and walking together (all of us!).

 The Rev'd Jonathan Kemp

Assistant Priest

As a relatively new addition to the team I am really enjoying getting to know the people of the parish. I was ordained Priest in 2020 and I’m particularly interested in exploring all the ways we can enjoy being an intergenerational community together. I have been married to Alison for more than 25 years and we live in Kenmore with our children Declan and Verity. I enjoy films, music and the highly addictive outdoor game called geocaching.

 The Rev'd David Dean

Assistant Priest

I have been involved in this parish since 1988.1 was ordained in 1994, and have worked here since then as part of the clergy team in a non-stipendiary capacity. I value those years very much, sharing with the Parish community in the wonderful journey of growing in grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. And I also much value working with my wife Mary in ministry, and her constant support, time spent with my family now including six adult grandchildren, walking with Mary, and watching sport on TV which I once loved to play.

 The Rev'd Graham Dorman

Associate Priest

It is great to feel part of the Kenmore-Brookfield Parish community, and to be able to serve when time and circumstances permit. I was ordained twenty-five years ago and after serving in three Parishes and as hospital chaplain, I retired, only to be asked to establish the Parish of Springfield. Again in retirement, it is good to be able to contribute. Among other interests such as family, gardening, and trying to keep fit, I also enjoy writing poetry, especially sonnets.

 The Rev'd Sandra Kjellgren

Associate Priest

It has been a delight to return to the parish of Kenmore-Brookfield upon retiring from full time ministry in February 2020. I have been ordained 27 years and am enjoying connecting with the people of faith in this place, along with the opportunity of providing priestly ministry for the Old Friary Worship Group on Sunday evenings.

 The Rev'd Josie Yarham

Associate Priest

I was ordained in 2012 and have enjoyed ministry in parishes and schools. I am honoured to work with Rev Jan as we create a new way of living our faith in community. I amuse myself with music teaching, study and playing board games with my husband and 3 school aged children.

Dr Neville Eckersley

Born in Sydney I have been a Brisbane resident essentially since the mid 70s. My four children have brought 5 lovely grandchildren into my life. I have a background in psychology, with theological training and a PhD on "Non-religious Christianity".

Dr Rachel McFadyen

Lay Preacher

I have been a member of this church community since 1976, except for the years 2014-2017 when I was in St George, Queensland and it is a huge part of my life. I even lived in the Curate’s house for 6 months in 2005! I hope to see out my old age in Kenmore and with this community.

Jen Bradbury

Co-ordinator – Messy Church

As Co-Ordinator of Messy Church I am very aware that the “Jesus Message” must always be at the core of our intergenerational approach to worship.  There are many different ways to learn, and as an educator part of the thrill of Messy Mornings is to see the core message emerge through a variety of media/mediums with all ages embracing painting, music, drama, woodwork and the like. It is all Jesus focused but so messy!

Carol Streatfield

Lay Leader, Contemplative Evensong

I have been in the parish since 1999. My greatest wish, and the driving force of all I do, is to share with others a path to experiencing the reality of Christ that is possible. Hence, the various contemplative practices in the parish. Apart from that, I enjoy crafts, and gardening when it’s not too cold, or too hot!
