Our Team

The Gungahlin Anglican Church ministry team consists of three ministers (a Senior Minister, an Associate Minister and an Assistant Minister), a part-time Children and Families worker, as well as many volunteers who work within the various ministries.

In addition, we have a Parish Council made up of three Wardens and six Parish Councillors.


Michael Dasey

Senior Minister
E-mail Michael Dasey

Michael is married to Naomi and they have three adult children and one almost adult child.

Michael grew up on the Northern Tablelands of NSW, studied at the University of New England and taught for 8 years in NSW and PNG. He studied theology at Moore College and was ordained in the Armidale Diocese where he served for 20 years before taking up the post of Rector of Gungahlin Anglican Church.

If you asked what most excites him, Michael would answer seeing people come into relationship with Jesus, seeing people grow in relationship with Jesus, spending time with his wife and extended family, body surfing, reading profound literature (preferably with a good coffee) and dreaming of still being able to score a try at touch football.
