Our staff

The Rev'd Steve Layson
Senior Minister
Steve has just joined the Gerringong Anglican Church family, having moved from Sydney’s North Shore, where he was a Senior Minister for 16 years. He is married to Lorna and they have three adult children. As a former teacher, Steve loves to help people understand the good news of God’s love for them. He firmly believes that God’s Word can bring hope and meaning to people’s lives in the 21st Century. He enjoys all kinds of sport and music, and loves hanging out with family and friends.
Jon Clare
The Rev'd Jon Clare
Assistant Minister
Jon joined the ministry team at the beginning of 2011, having spent four years serving at St Jude’s Anglican Church in Bowral. He is married to Fiona and they have four young children. Jon loves seeing people grow in their relationship with Jesus. He enjoys cooking & eating, reading (especially history & fiction), jogging and bush walking – most of which are theoretical exercises at this stage of family life! He understands that some people apparently like motor sports.
