About Us ›
At Ann Street we believe, that every member is part of the ministry team. We are always looking for new people to join us in the task of making Jesus known to the people of this great city of Brisbane.

Rev David & Ruth Jones
David and Ruth came to Ann Street in March 2014. Previously David has served churches in Wales, London and Hobart. David and Ruth have 3 grown up children and a new baby grand-daughter.
David, together with the elders, oversees our growing ministry team and does the bulk of the preaching at our morning services. His vision for Ann Street church is to see the church grow both numerically and spiritually by the multiplication of congregations and ministries.
We are excited about being here right in the centre of the city and want to live up to our motto, which is to be “the church in the square with a heart for the city”

Rev Gary & Pam Tosh
Gary Tosh is our minister to seniors at Ann Street. His role is to visit and encourage Christian Seniors in their faith in Christ. Gary and Pam have been in ministry together for very many years, having served churches at Maryborough, Acacia Ridge, Bundaberg and Redcliffe Peninsula. Before retiring Gary worked eight years with PresCare in Age care Chaplaincy.
We have called him out of retirement to work one day a week as minister to seniors. Gary says “ I firmly believe that a Church that fails to embrace its past loyal members fails to love their neighbour as themselves and cannot fully expect to be abundantly blessed by God.”
Melinda is excited about helping the church family at Ann St to extend the truth and love we find in Jesus to one another and to our wider community. She will be serving the ministry team and whole church community in a variety of ways, but will take a particular interest in encouraging and equipping women in the gospel.
Garrett and Sophie have lived in Brisbane since moving here from Melbourne in 2012. Garrett served on staff at North Pine Anglican Church in Petrie before making the move to Ann St, and Sophie has completed her post graduate studies and is now working at a local private hospital. They are very excited to be a part of God's work in Brisbane and to see the name of Jesus glorified in this city.
