Rev Helen Barnard

My journey in life started in Hobart where I was born, educated, trained as a nurse and committed my life to Christ at 15 at a church youth camp.  Through my young adult life I was actively involved in numerous Christian groups.  I worked for the United Aborigines Mission at Warburton Ranges, studied at the Sydney and Missionary Bible College for two years then went overseas to work.  I married in England and life headed in a different direction.  It was the beginning of a very testing time which resulted in divorce, returning to Australia, many moves for work in WA, trying to make sense of events and drifting in my relationship with God.  Attendance at a Back to Church Sunday service was the beginning of a renewed commitment to God which deepened when I retired.  I became actively involved in Cursillo, parish council and became a Licensed Lay Minister.   After initially fighting the call to the ministry it was at the celebration of the Feast of St Andrew in 2015 I was ordained as a Deacon and 2015 as a Priest.   As I have become increasingly involved in the life and work of the parish I have a deep sense of fulfilment, peace and joy and am eternally grateful for the support and encouragement I have received through the parish. God’s promise in Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the plans I have for you, --- plans to prosper you and not t harm you, to give you a future and a hope’ was significant when I went to England and continues to be.  It is a privilege to serve God as part of the clerical team at St John’s.
