    Your tour leader Geoff Cheong grew up in Melbourne as a baby boomer and has wonderful memories of his home parish church of St. Matthew’s Anglican Church Ashburton at a time it well served the young families of the area. The rich community fellowship had a profound influence on shaping his vision of worship and Christian fellowship.. After ordination the sense of call led to further pastoral training in Canada, where he met Jane Egbert through a young Christian singles group. They were married and began their joint life and ministry in the rural parish of the Rideau where they served for five years before being invited to return to Australia with their two young daughters. Geoff began as vicar of St. Augustine’s Mentone. Jane worked as a Community Health Nurse for 25 years in the City of Kingston. They speak of 16 wonderful years of ministry in Mentone now followed by another 15 years in the inner suburban parish of Holy Trinity, Balaclava and Elwood. The Cheong’s have also led two parish groups to Israel.
