Shirley Nash


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.

David Tuke

I have lived in Eltham for 25 years with my family - my wife Mitzi and our three children, Emily, Lachlan and Natalie. Up until recently the Catholic Church played a large part in my life (sometimes at more times than others). We are now attending St Margaret's and finding a more inclusive, forward looking and democratic experience of our collective faith, while carrying forward its traditional expression. I am a director of a superannuation software development company and I have a number of interests, among them being woodwork and building, Roman and Medieval history, philosophy and Internet web design.

Kathleen Toal

Kathleen, her husband Gary and their three children moved to Eltham in 1977.  They began worshiping at St Margaret’s at the time the old Gibson Hall was being demolished to make way for the new Mud Brick Hall which opened in 1978.  Since then Kathleen has lived through many changes in the parish. Kathleen enjoys her role as Parish Treasurer, having a keen interest in Accounts, Financial Reporting and Budgets. Kathleen is also a member of the Parish Discovering Spirituality Team, an outworking of her faith about which she is passionate.  Other interests include Reading, Genealogy and Family History.  Kathleen has been an active member of the Movement for the Ordination of Women since 1984 and is Treasurer of MOWatch Australia. Kathleen and Gary now have seven grandchildren who are a great delight.
