Fr Peter Yeats

New rector for St John's, Balmain

Archbishop Glenn Davies has approved the appointment of Rev Canon Peter Yeats as the new Rector of St John's, Balmain. He is currently the Rector at St Luke's Modbury SA. Peter is originally from the UK, where he trained, and he has been involved in a variety of ministries including in Japan, Hong Kong and PNG. Peter is 53, and married to Karolina, a teacher. They have two grown children, both at university in Melbourne. Peter is said to be passionate about mission, and his parish-to-be is looking forward with prayer to a time of spiritual and physical growth. The website of his current parish in Adelaide also cheekily informs us that Peter is passionate about spicy food and, at the moment, the study of eschatology, but that "he has no dress sense". Welcome Fr. Peter! He will be inducted on 1 October - watch here for more details about that occasion.
