Born in New Zealand, Bryce moved to Australia in 1992. After working in Sydney and Melbourne in a number of roles including graphic designer, lay seafarers’ chaplain, lay pastoral worker, receptionist, furniture removalist, and lighting and sound technician, Bryce was ordained a deacon and then a priest in the Newcastle Diocese in 2011.

Bryce is passionate about new and creative ways of worshiping and experiencing God, and is committed to teaching and empowering Christians to share Jesus’ mission. He is convinced that the best way to grow the church is if every member feels confident enough to be able to communicate their faith in action and words.

Bryce has a Bachelor of Theology, an Advanced Diploma of Ministry and an Advanced Diploma of Biblical Interpretation, as well as a Master of Design.

He is married to Sally Cloke, who teaches design theory and is a PhD candidate at the University of Newcastle.
