Ps. Mark and Ps. Ally Edwards | Senior Pastors

Helen Bonzo | Office Administrator

I love being part of the HCC community and working here is the cherry on top! Won’t say no to a walk at the beach, chocolate, and time with family & friends. I’ve learned a lot about God’s heart for each and every individual, and love to see people finding freedom in Him. Feel free to stop by the office – we like to see friendly faces!

Jenny Irvine | Ministry Support

When our family of 5 made the move from Sydney 8 years ago, we really needed a place to connect. We found a home here at HCC. While I am often organising people, rosters and programs, my passion lies in seeing people connect with the truth of who God really is and their true identity in Him. I know that no program can come close to the transforming power of Jesus at work in our lives.

Joan and David Maddison | Pastoral Care

We have been attending HCC for 10 years and started coordinating Pastoral Care in 2017. Our passion is to love, support and grow others in their journey of life and faith as well as reach out and sow into our local community. Throughout our time in ministry we have also been children and youth pastors and we still have the same passion to see young people grow in the Lord. We have been married for over 50 years and are blessed to have two kids. One daughter, son in law and a granddaughter live in Queensland which gives us a great excuse for regular holidays, our other married daughter lives in Eleebana. We are open to a chat anytime.

Sam McNeil | Ministry Intern

Hi, I’m Sam and I look out for the young people in our Church. I was lucky enough for my Nan to receive a Kids Holiday Club flyer in her letter box when I was 4 years old, and I guess I never left. I am passionate about Jesus, young people and the city of Newcastle. I’m so blessed that I get to work in a place that allows me to work with all three.
