My name is Brendan Byrne, and having spent the better part of two decades involved in the Australian trade union movement in various capacities, I commenced Bachelor of Theology studies in 2006; and, together with my wife Sandy, became a full-time candidate to the ordained ministry of the Uniting Church in Australia in 2008. We completed our Exit Year as ministry candidates in 2010.
While waiting for a full-time placement to become available, I spent most of 2011 in supply ministry in the congregations of Trafalgar (Jan-Mar) and Doncaster East (Apr-Sep). I was ordained a Minister of the Word on 14th October 2011; and in November, 2011, I commenced my first placement at Mountview Uniting Church, Mitcham.
This blog is a space especially dedicated to matters of faith: sermons, prayers, reflections, and occasionally a comment or two.
