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.

In 2015 we came to WA to lead St Nicholas Minster, remembering to bring our three children now aged 15, 19 and 21 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.
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.
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 and children’s ministry as well as keeping us on track as a family.
