Our Staff


Graeme Howells, Senior Minister

Graeme joined Rouse Hill Anglican Church as Senior Minister in July 2011. Graeme had the privilege of growing up in a Christian family and during his teenage years came to understand clearly that following God’s Son Jesus is the most important and exciting thing a person can do. Graeme has a passion for seeing people come to know Jesus and grow in their Christian life and faith.

Graeme trained at Moore College in Sydney and served in ministry at St Luke’s Anglican Miranda from 2002-2011, first as Youth Minister, then Young Adults Minister, and then church planting with families ministry at Miranda North Community Church.

Graeme is married to Susanna and they have three kids who keep them constantly entertained. The Howells family love days out at the zoo. Graeme loves going to the movies, and taking his kayak out for a paddle.


Glen Elsegood, Youth Minister

Glen became a Christian whilst on student exchange in 2000. Although he had grown up going to Sunday school and then to Youth group, it wasn’t until later when he was challenged on what life was all about that he came to understand that Jesus was the living Lord of everything- and that Jesus loved him deeply. Glen wants to help others (especially children and young people) meet Jesus and follow Him as their saviour.

Glen trained at Youthworks College here in Sydney and was previously Youth Minister at St Swithun’s, Pymble from 2008-2013.

Glen is married to Kate and they have three kids, Phoebe, Gideon and Micah, who keep them busy and amused from day to day. A typical weekend wouldn’t be complete without good food, plenty of football and a whole heap of fun.


Natalie Walker, Families Outreach Worker

Natalie joined the congregation of Rouse Hill Anglican in 2008 and is an enthusiastic contributor to countless areas of our church life. Natalie commenced part-time employment as our Families Outreach Worker in April 2012. In addition, Natalie volunteers a day each week to assist with the smooth running of the parish by looking after our administration needs. Natalie has a busy family life and is married to Geoff and has two children.



Carla Matthews, Administration

Carla has been with Rouse Hill Anglican Church since the church was planted in 2004, and she has been active in many ministry areas, including: crèche, running youth group, helping to lead Bible study groups, hosting church events, leading singing and helping out at Rouse About. She has recently taken on this part-time volunteer administration role at our church.

Carla is married to Corey and has four teenage kids, and is part way through a combined Diploma in Theology and Ministry at SMBC.


Tim Rowe, Student Minister

Tim is studying at Moore Theological College and joined Rouse Hill Anglican in 2016, together with his wife, Sarah, and son, William. Tim was blessed to grow up in a Christian family where he was taught about Jesus’ love, and while there have been ups and downs, he is convinced that there is nothing more important than knowing Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, and no better way of living than following Him. Tim loves Jesus, his family and cycling (amongst other things – but in that order!).


Brian Rennie, Student Minister

Brian is going into his third year of study at Moore Theological College. Brian was privileged to grow up in a Christian family. As a teenager he was confronted by God’s gracious provision of Jesus to take the penalty he deserved for his sin, and so he placed his trust in Jesus. When he isn’t studying Brian loves making and drinking coffee, going jogging, or just enjoying the outdoors.



In addition to the ministry staff there are a number of official parish roles including wardens, parish councilors and parish representatives.
