Wayne is a leader who believes that God’s Kingdom grows best through local churches that value justice, love mercy and are eager to see God’s grace break through in surprising ways.

He is the Archdeacon for Chaplaincy and a member of the Diocese’s Public Issues Commission. He is currently a member of General Synod’s Mission and Ministry Commission and involved the NSW Civil Chaplaincy Advisory Committee and formerly the chairperson of ACT Pastoral Care Council.

Wayne completed his PhD in 2014 which examined the cultural challenges associated with innovation in a variety of church settings. His initial theological education was done in Canada at Regent College, Vancouver. He loves snowboarding and is passionate about everyday discipleship.

Revd Wendy Robertson

Curate and Community Chaplain
Children’s Ministry

Wendy is excited to learn how best to love and care for the community through her work as a community chaplain. By listening well to the needs of Holy Covenant’s neighbours and encouraging the church to do something about it, she hopes and prays that God’s Kingdom of peace, justice and love can come to the ‘hood.

Wendy worked as an RN for 15 years before studying theology and ministry. She finished her MA in Theology at St Mark’s in 2020, and is currently completing a BMin in Chaplaincy through Adelaide College of Divinity. She has recently been ordained to the diaconate.

A mother of four primary and high school aged kids, she understands how wonderful (and crazy) the parenting journey can be. She seeks to lead Holy Cov kids in discovering the awesomeness and wonder of living a life in the Jesus Way.

Ven Emeritus Anne Ranse OAM

Holistic Care Nursing Ministries

The Venerable Emeritus Anne Ranse OAM RN is the chaplain to the parish’s Holistic Care Nursing Ministry. This ministry cares for the elderly, isolated and housebound in the community by providing social activities, community events and assistance to enable people to stay in their own home for as long as possible.

Anne was ordained a permanent deacon in the Diocese on Ascension day, 24 May 1998. Prior to ordination and raising a family Anne was a hospital trained nurse, qualifying in General Nursing at Goulburn Base Hospital and Midwifery at Royal North Shore, Sydney. She worked as a Missionary Nurse in the outback with Bush Church Aid Society at Coober Pedy in South Australia and the Presbyterian Board of Missions in the remote and isolated Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal Community of Ernabella in the Musgrave Ranges of South Australia. She continues to raise the profile of the diaconate in the Diocese and around Australia.

Youth Group

Megan Arthur

Office Manager

Megan started worshipping at Holy Covenant in December 2020, and was very excited to be appointed to the role of Office Manager in November 2021.  Megan is a mother, foster mother, and grandmother to many, and uses she/her pronouns.

Megan’s work and ministry backgrounds are best described as ‘eclectic’. She was baptised as a child in the Methodist Church, confirmed and married in the Uniting Church.  Lived experience as a builder’s labourer, public servant, union industrial officer, family day-care provider, apprentice chef, teacher, member of multiple management committees and university lecturer have honed her administrative and writing skills. Further lived experience of parenting and fostering children and young people with complex medical and mental health needs, chronic illness, marriage breakdown, separation and divorce, and homelessness have driven Megan into a deep and continuing exploration of liberation theology, and its outworkings in social justice and inclusion.

Megan has many plans for streamlining and strengthening the administration of the office, and promises not to jump into all of them at once.
