Evening Church Plant

St Andrew’s has a vision that the Good News of Jesus should reach the whole of Wahroonga and the surrounding suburbs.

In order to do this most effectively, we are replanting our evening service in Term 4 of 2016.

We would like to invite like-minded and Gospel-hearted people to partner with us in this mission. The enterprise will be headed by Andrew Rees and Pete Tong, under God, and is a great opportunity for you to make a great contribution to God’s work in the area.

We have more information regarding the Vision of the Evening plant and our goals and reasons for this big step here.

Email Andrew or Pete if you would like to be involved in this exciting plant – we would love your partnership in this through prayer or a commitment to be a part of it!

Andrew and Pete


Andrew serves the St Andrew’s church family as Senior Minister. He became a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, aged 12, by God’s grace and through the faithful and relentless proclamation of the gospel, by the many that God put in his path at the start of high school. He is married to Liz and they have four children; Finn, Jaimee, Evie, Tilly. He enjoys discovering new music, loves meals with friends (old and new) and watching or playing sport.

Andrew grew up not far from Wahroonga and is passionate about sharing the wonderful news of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, with this part of Sydney. Together with Pete Tong, Andrew will lead the new church plant and is keen to meet with anyone interested in partnering with St Andrew’s in building his God’s church in Wahroonga and surrounding communities, for the sake of God’s name.

Pete TongPete started with us in 2015 as Senior Assistant Minister. Having grown up in a Christian family, Pete has known Jesus as his Lord and Saviour for as long as he can remember. He is married to Katelyn and they have three children; Chloe, Lily and Samuel.

Pete graduated from Moore Theological College in 2008 and, when time permits, continues research on narrative criticism in the Gospels. He enjoys drinking good coffee, watching bad TV and playing all sport. He never misses a chance to throw a fishing line in the water but is still chasing that elusive mulloway.
