Mark Sutton

Senior Pastor

Mark is our Senior Pastor. He trained at Moore Theological College and ministered in several Anglican Churches in the Armidale Diocese, as well as Bathurst Community Church before becoming pastor of BEC in 2012 .

He is married to Rosie, and they have three adult children, all involved in Christian ministry, as well five grandchildren.

Apart from his family and ministry, Mark’s interests are often centred around things with wheels. He is a keen cyclist and would be right into motorsport too if he thought he could justify the expense! He and Rosie have been married since 1980, and have lived in the Blue Mountains, Tamworth, Sydney, Guyra, Barraba, Narrabri and now Bathurst.
