Our Team

Kimberly Sawyer

Priest in Charge

Kimberly’s greatest joy is to help people to know Christ and to be with His people in community. She loves to connect with all ages and began her formal ministry as a school Chaplain before moving to Parish ministry. Kimberly says, “Being able to lead such a vibrant community of faith here at St John’s is a wonderful privilege”. 

Kimberly arrived in Cooks Hill with a menagerie of animals. She has two adult children. In her spare time she may be found with her new dog park friends or swimming with the locals.


Ken Youman

Honorary Associate Priest

After retiring as an Electrical Engineer, Ken retrained as a Minister and after a time in full-time ministry, moved to Cooks Hill with his wife Margret. He now volunteers his time at St John’s, leading a number of services and activities each week and sharing our wedding and baptism ministry with Kimberly.

Ken has a great heart for people and has a warm and deep spirituality. Ken leads our fortnightly mindfulness group for Listening, Healing and Meditation.
