john-winkettjpeg I am married to Christine and we have three children and eight grandchildren who all now live in Melbourne. I have been a member of St Margaret’s for over 20 years and in the past I have served on the Vestry as well as being a warden with the Rev Val Rogers. I chaired The Re-development Committee and now chair the Phase III Re-development Group as well as being Vicar’s Warden. Outside the Church my main interests are singing in a Gospel Choir, woodwork and keeping up with grandchildren and their sport. Christine and I enjoy our garden and enjoy travelling and I have a passion for railways.

Shirley Shirley and her two children began worshiping at St Margaret’s in the late 1980s. She was also part of the Church of the Transfiguration Research at the time of its closure, learning much about grief and its management during this time and during the amalgamation with St Faith’s Montmorency. Shirley enjoys her role on the Parish Discovering Spirituality Team, an outworking of her faith about which she is passionate. Other interests include reading, music, film, travel, gardening and family – especially her 3 grandchildren. She worked as Anglican Chaplain at the Royal Children’s Hospital for some years and continues to work as a supervisor with pastoral and spiritual care practitioners.
