Revd Graeme Liersch appointed Rector of Wonthaggi & Inverloch

October 16th, 2020

Congratulations to the Revd Graeme Liersch who has been appointed as Rector of Wonthaggi & Inverloch!

Graeme is a highly motivated person with a breadth of personal and professional experience. He has served in the RAAF as an Electronics Technician, and as a Philanthropic Welfare Office with the Department of Defence.

In early 2016 the Bush Church Aid Society supported Graemeā€™s appointment as Mission Facilitator and Trainer for Central West QLD (Diocese of Rockhampton), overseeing ministry in three parishes covering a vast area, whilst continuing as a Reserve Air Force Chaplain and as a Director of two companies that provide philanthropic support to the Defence Forces.

Graeme is married to The Revd Susan Liersch, an Occupational Therapist and a trained counsellor and Adolescent and Mental Health Worker. Susan is a Deacon and has just completed a Bachelor of Theology degree.

We look forward to welcoming Graeme and Susan to the Diocese in the new year. Please pray for them and the Parish of Wonthaggi & Inverloch as they prepare to embark upon this new stage of ministry together.
