Meet the Minister

Rev Jamie and Verity Murray


I was baptised at 8, confirmed at 15 and really met Jesus at 18 years of age while studying music in London. I went on to live in Christian community, following a rhythm of prayer loosely based on the monastic tradition before marrying Verity in 1994.

Hopefully, we will meet you sometime.

In 2015 we came to WA to lead St Nicholas Minster, remembering to bring our three children now aged 16, 20 and 22 and a surprising amount of stuff!
As a minster parish, our commitment to people takes us beyond our immediate area as we partner with other Christian communities in the South West.
Verity and I really enjoy seeing people encounter Jesus and discover how much God our heavenly Father loves them. Our Alpha courses are one of the ways we do this. It is a privilege supporting one another as we grow in being part of His family. That brings its challenges and we work on those together in community. 'Being Together' is a series of teachings that we aspire to live by as part of our understanding of community life. You can find the recording under 'Online Resources.'
Along the way, I write songs and compose music and continue to train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Base MMA in Bunbury.
Verity is a teacher and is helping us here with our small groups, children’s ministry and discipleship courses. Somehow she also manages to keep our family on track.
