Meet the team

Rev. Mark Fraser

Mark and his family have been part of St Luke’s since September 2008.  His teaching is grounded in the Bible, accessible to people at all stages of faith and centres on how we live out the teachings of Jesus in our day-to-day lives.

Mark has a heart for growing St Luke’s through friendship, discipleship and demonstrating the love of Jesus to others, outside the four walls of our church, in the communities where we live and work.


On his day off Mark might be found out walking in the country, catching a film, cooking for friends or playing croquet.
