Leadership and Management at All Souls

The following outlines the leadership and management teams and structures at All Souls Anglican Church. All Souls grew out of two churches St Matthew's, St Albans and St Mary's, Merivale) coming together in 2013. We are growing as a church that seeks to engage in mission and discipleship. As the ministry has evolved, so have the leadership structures, moving towards teams of people who share leadership and management responsibilities in a number of different areas.

Rev'd Megan Herles-Mooar

Megan was initially appointed as the transitional Priest to lead All Souls in 2010 and has now been appointed as Vicar. As the church people come together at the new worship centre in Merivale, they have been excited to see others step up to join them in listening to God and leading the All Souls faith community.
