Donald Robinson Village Chaplaincy
Donald Robinson Village Chaplain
Andrew is married to Keena and they have four adult children and 15 grandchildren. They have lived in Como since 1995. Andrew loves anything outdoors especially in water and is becoming more reflective with age… at last!
Andrew began ministry in Sutherland in 2011 as the Interim Minister (part-time) while still serving as a Chaplain with Anglican Youthworks’ Gap Year program ‘Year 13’. After 25 years with Youthworks in a few different roles and serving as Youth Minister in the Parishes of Homebush West and Lismore it was time for a change. Being a chaplain at Donald Robinson Village alongside Faye Hillier was just the thing… like youth ministry, retirement living is very relational and everybody knows each other well… no room for masks and show-offs… Andrew loves being real and relevant!
Donald Robinson Village Chaplain
Faye Hillier – Faye is a chaplain at Donald Robinson Village. She started life in England and arrived in Australia when she was 7. She was the quiet one at school, happy to go unnoticed and under the radar. The real journey began at 17 when a friend invited her to youth group… she realised that Jesus not only saw her, he loved her! His love continues to fuel her life… along with a love of the outdoors, time with family and shared cups of tea.
