Bishop of Georges River

Welcome to the web page for Bishop Peter Lin and the Georges River Region
Peter is married to Isobel and they have 3 daughters.
An Australian-born-Chinese, Peter grew up in Sydney’s North Shore.
After finishing degrees at Sydney and Macquarie Universities, and a 5 year stint in the workforce, he entered Moore Theological College in 1995. In 1998 he started as a student minister at St Barnabas’ Anglican Church, Fairfield (now Fairfield with Bossley Park), in the South West of Sydney and remained there until he was consecrated as a Bishop in May 2015. Fairfield has one of the highest concentrations of ethnic diversity in Australia, and Peter quickly developed a love for the cuisines of the world.
Peter loves the diversity of the Georges River Region (and the challenges it brings) and just can’t believe the privilege he has in seeing people from the nations of the world come to know Jesus.
