Who We Are

WS Strathfield is an energetic, multi-cultural, cross-generational congregation excited about the gospel of Jesus Christ! Currently, over 200 people across all ages regularly attend our two congregations, Strathfield 9am and 430pm.

We seek to 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.

Each Sunday, we gather together to sing songs praising Jesus, pray together and hear a 30-minute talk from the Bible.  After service, we share morning tea and catch up (after strathfield 9am) or have share a fortnightly potluck dinner (after strathfield 4:30pm).  We also have youth programs for high schoolers, children’s programs for primary school age children and creche programs for pre-schoolers, as well as a parents rooms for parents and infants.

Each week we gather together in Small Groups.  To find out more and to get connected with us, fill in a response form!

Our Pastors

Andrew Bardsley

Andrew Bardsley


On the outside, Andrew looks like a regular north coast (Ballina!) surfie.  But on the inside, Andrew is a nerdy academic.  He completed a Master of Divinity (at Sydney Missionary and Bible College) and Master of Arts Theology (at Christ College), and loves to read and research.

Andrew also has a BA and DipEd and was a high school visual arts teacher. He loves using his creativity to come up with imaginative ways to explain God’s amazing message of freedom in the Bible and to help people know Christ and grow in Christ by digging deep into the treasure of God’s word.

Andrew is married to Krissie, and they have three children.  In his spare time, Andrew enjoys surfing, art, and exploring the great outdoors with his family.

Morgan Powell

Morgan Powell


Morgan Powell brings a local and international flavour to our ministry team at WSCCC. Although he grew up and went to school in Bexley, in Sydney’s south, he has lived in East Africa, Los Angeles, and Jackson Hole. His travels have taken him from Morocco to Mexico.

Over 25 years ago, Morgan left accounting to go into full time Christian ministry. Morgan has served as a pastor, church planter, youth minister, teacher, and missions director in a variety of places such as Beverly Hills, West Pennant Hills in Australia; and Ecuador and Peru in South America. As a result, Morgan no longer knows which soccer team to support.

Happiness is a frame of mind. Morgan is equally happy with instant International Roast or a cold pour single origin coffee; a Mexican burrito or a Shanghai Xia Long Bao. As a result, Morgan has no idea what to order at Chatime. You’ll have to order for him.

But Morgan is single-minded when it comes to pastoral ministry. He brings his wisdom, life-experience, and pastoral know-how to care, grow, and strengthen us at WSCCC.

Morgan is married to Anna, who attended youth group and was a youth group leader at WSCCC back in the day. They are blessed with two resilient daughters who can survive 72 hour plane trips.
