Peter was a man of great faith and a true servant. He was ordained in 1961 and served as Pastor at NewHope as well as many other Baptist Churches over the years including South Kingsville, Warracknabeal, Bulleen, Wangaratta, Beaumaris, Boronia, North Balwyn and Clarinda. 

We thank God for Peter’s faithful service and example to us all, and we pray for Elizabeth, their 3 daughters and their extended family at this time.
