A Profile of our Minister

Rev. Greg Watt - Minister at John Knox Presbyterian Church, Townsville

Rev. Greg Watt has been the Minister at our church for a number of years.

Following a childhood in Papua New Guinea, he moved to Queensland where he worked at the Butter Marketing Board in a variety of capacities.


He was ordained as a Minister in 2000, and churches where he has ministered include Caboolture.


Greg comments that the ways God changed his life were by long exposure to God’s word, and through “the ups and downs of life”.

His goal for the year is to strengthen the hands of God’s people and congregations, particularly encouraging the habit of daily meditation in God’s Word.

Greg and his wife Helen have two adult children – Sidney and Robert.

At the 2017 Church Assembly, he was appointed the State Moderator of the Queensland Presbyterian Church for the year to June 2018.
