Meet the team

Rev. Peter Chapman, together with his wife Carlie, and his children (Bethany, Sebastian, Elijah & Ethan) have been with us since 2006. As well as being a minister at a busy local church and a father of four, Peter plays competition tennis, surfs a SUP, is a keen observer of popular culture, and is a one-eyed Dragons fan. You’ll often hear Pete on the radio as he hosts ‘Straight to the Heart’ on Pulse 94.1, and as an occasional guest panelist on the Friday Ethics Panel on ABC Illawarra with Nich Rheinberger.

Rev. Peter Chapman


Peter Swann (Swanny to his mates) joins us from December 2015 as our Next Gen Pastor. Swanny is married to Laura, and is Dad to Grace and Micah. He has already got stuck in and been a part of at least two water fights at both BiG and DiG (and came off second-best in both), so we know he’ll fit right in!
