Business Council

Bill Monaghan had a long and well-travelled career in the Australian Public Service. Since his retirement and appointment to the leadership of the church he has been active in establishing and running the Seniors’ fellowship and has a great desire for the church to be affecting the community in a very practical way. He and his wife Christine have two adult sons.

Andrew Heath has a background in computer programming and brings his technical skills to the team, working with the sound and audiovisual aspects of the church. His well-thought pulpit contributions are always a pleasure to hear, as are his performances on the baritone horn in the Canberra Brass Band.

Daniel Garrard is an engineer who has worked in the private and public sectors. He assists with many of the technical tasks around the church community and has a keen interest in biblical history. He and his wife Jenny have four children.

David Steele has been treasurer of GCC for many years and continues his role even in retirement. His sharpness with numbers is matched only by his rapier wit and easygoing nature. He and his wife Robyn have three children and six grandchildren.

Rostyn and Kylie Heffernan joined GCC after a long stint of travelling around Australia, doing things as diverse as working in the WA mines to staffing a rehabilitation clinic in Coffs Harbour. They run a successful electrician franchise and always bring a fresh angle to the issues at hand. Rostyn and Kylie have three children.

Choqi Hasibuan is a native of Indonesia and has spent considerable time working with the Indonesian Christian Fellowship in Canberra. Choqi brings an international perspective to the leadership of the church and his creative wife Hanna plays in the music team and produces the church newsletter. Choqi and Hanna have two children.
