Our Rector

The Reverend George Hemmings was inducted as Priest in Charge of the Parish of Christ Church Echuca on Friday 17 April 2015 at Christ Church and was appointed as Rector on 14 January 2016.

He spent 15 years in Melbourne, studying science, managing a bookshop and training for ministry. After graduating from Ridley College he was ordained in the Diocese of Melbourne and spent three and a half years serving as a curate at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church in Burwood. Having grown up in rural Queensland, George was very happy to leave the city behind and to move to Echuca-Moama.

George is married to Sarah and they have four young boys, who keep them very busy. When he’s not working or chasing his boys around, George enjoys reading science fiction & fantasy novels and playing table-top board games.
