Sturt Young, Senior Pastor

Sturt is the Senior Pastor at Barrenjoey Church. He is married to Emma (since 1996) and has 3 children, Bryn, Tal and Anwyn. 

Sturt spent most of his working life before full-time ministry in the IT industry ( sound fun doesn't it! ). In 2005 he started studying at Moore Theological College in Sydney and in 2009 started an 8 year ministry at St James Anglican Church, Turramurra. 

In February 2017 Sturt became the Senior Pastor of Barrenjoey Church. He loves coffee, blues music and the relaxed northern beaches vibe. More than that, he loves Jesus and wants others to know Jesus' love in their lives.
