Welcome to All Saints' Mitcham!
We are a gospel-centred, Bible-based Anglican church in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and we welcome you to join us. Each Sunday morning we gather together to hear God's Word about the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ as we share in the Lord's Supper together.
Rev’d Greg Wong
Greg is married to Aileen and they have two beautiful kids Zach and Adele. Greg grew up in Melbourne, attending both school and university here. After university Greg worked in accounting and then finance before being encouraged to go into full-time ministry to share the good news about Jesus with others. The family moved to Sydney where Greg studied at Moore Theological College, then returned to Melbourne in 2018 and was ordained as an Anglican minister.

Ivan was born in Canberra into a medical family then moved to Sydney to study Civil Engineering. Following this, Ivan was employed by a Sydney based contractor, and worked on many projects in NSW and Victoria. While working in Murchison, Victoria, Ivan met Pat and they were married at All Saints’, East St. Kilda. They have three daughters who live inter-state and usually manage to meet up annually. Ivan and Pat now have three grand-daughters.
Ivan has always been associated with churches named ‘All Saints’. The first church with his marriage, then All Saints', Nunawading, and now All Saints', Mitcham. Ivan has been involved for many years as a member of the Anglican Men’s Society (AMS) having served as the National Secretary for 16 years. Normally AMS holds an annual conference at a different location each year, and this provides a view of how the church is functioning in other Dioceses.
As a warden, Ivan is keen to be part of the church that shares the gospel with the community.
