Welcome to WS Strathfield!

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here.

WS Strathfield has two English speaking congregations.

Strathfield 9am & 4:30pm are energetic, multi-cultural, cross-generational congregations excited about the gospel of Jesus Christ!  We maintain a tradition of strong biblical teaching through our Sunday services as well as our associated ministries. Our congregation has a culture of being committed to growing, serving, and training in ministry. Although we are part of a Chinese church, our ministry is to people of all backgrounds.

Our Pastors

Andrew Bardsley

Andrew Bardsley

Pastor

On the outside, Andrew looks like a regular north coast (Ballina!) surfie. But on the inside, Andrew is a nerdy academic – he loves to read and research. Now that he has finished a Master of Divinity (at Sydney Missionary and Bible College) and Master of Arts (Theology), he’s doing further study.

Andrew also has a BA and DipEd and was a high school visual arts teacher. He loves to use his creativity to come up with imaginative ways to explain God’s amazing message of freedom in the Bible.

Andrew is married to Krissie, and they have three young children.

Wayne Mok

Wayne is originally from Hong Kong, but spent much time moving between Australia, Canada, and the United States. Wayne and his new wife Veronica, who studied in Sydney, arrived at WSCCC in January 2020.

He studied theology at Wheaton College in the US and Regent College in Canada, and worked for churches in New York and Hong Kong before moving to Sydney. In his spare time, Wayne enjoys travelling, reading, watching basketball and anything jazz!

Daniel Chieng

Daniel Chieng

Youth Pastor

Dan works part-time as a youth pastor at WSCCC and part-time as a hospital pharmacist. He was born in Malaysia, and is fluent in English and Mandarin.  He moved to Australia in high school and is a graduate of Sydney Missionary and Bible College. He is newly married to the lovely Kathryn.

Dan became a Christian when he was 14 years old at a youth camp.  He received the calling to serve in ministry when God revealed to him that the harvests are plentiful but the workers are few (Matt 9:37-38).  He is passionate about seeing more people coming to know Jesus!

Dan also enjoys a good bubble tea, badminton, catching up with friends, karaoke, Marvel movies and fishing.  Hit Dan up if you’re also a keen fisherman like him!

Reaching Out

At WS Strathfield, we have a heart to reach out to the world with God’s love and truth. Jesus calls his followers to be ‘salt’ and ‘light’ and be a positive influence in the world around us. Jesus calls his followers to love each other. Jesus also calls us to teach people God’s truth and help people grow as his followers. This means we care about people. We care about justice. We care about the needy – locally and abroad. We care about everyone, including children and youth having the opportunity to hear the truth about Jesus. And we seek to reach out both in our local communities and around the world. To read more, click here.
