Meet the Team

Rev David Fotheringham – Minister

While many members of the congregation are involved in the pastoral care and outreach activities of the church, David leads the ministry team. David originally trained in Physics, but felt God’s calling leading him to ministry, for which he was ordained in 2000. He served in congregations in Whittlesea, Horsham and Ashburton before accepting the call to Frankston in 2016.

His current particular interests include attention to spiritual practices to nurture our relationship with God. He has two children, is involved in a variety of church-based and social activities, and sees High Street Uniting Church as well placed for responding to God’s presence in the Frankston community.

Hannah Dungan – Youth Coordinator (1.5 days a week)

Hannah is an enthusiastic, engaging, creative self-starter, who has a passion for social justice, inclusion and risk-taking in the name of Jesus. She describes herself as a Messy Christian, who is committed to living out the way of love as Jesus taught: by loving God, loving neighbour, and loving self.

She has a Bachelor of Theology and has recently completed her post graduate Diploma in Pastoral Care. Hannah has served as a Pastor in the Uniting Church with a children, youth and families focus for over 10 years, and is currently working with the St Marks Uniting Church in Mornington as their Children and Families Pastor.

Hannah has spent time in a Monastery in India, an orphanage in Cambodia, an indigenous community in South Australia, and has recently returned from a few years of rubbing shoulders with our politicians in Canberra while working as the Congregational Development Minister at Kippax Uniting Church, Holt.

Hannah’s guilty pleasures include reality TV, chocolate, and the Bombers! In her spare time, you’ll find her Op-shopping, shaking her booty at ‘Zumba’ class, and singing along to the radio – window down!
