Rev. Lindsay Cullen
Rev. Lindsay Cullen has been a Minister of the Word in the Uniting Church since 2003, and is currently placed as one of the National Consultants within the Assembly Resourcing Unit. Lindsay has a keen interest in amateur dramatics, loves reading Science Fiction and Fantasy, and as a former computer programmer, geeking out over all the latest gadgets and apps. Lindsay spent five years living in London while he was studying Philosophical Theology. His particular area of academic interest is the intersection of Science and Theology.
Lindsay has extensive ecumenical experience. He was originally ordained by the Baptist Union of NSW. During his time in England, he attended a Church of England, and was involved in Lay Reader Training and Continuing Ministerial Education Seminars for the Diocese of Rochester. He then spent a year serving as Visiting Minister with a congregation of the United Reformed Church. On his return to Australia he applied to join the Uniting Church through the Reception of Ministers process. Within the UCA, Lindsay has served in rural, regional and urban contexts and a major focus of his ministry has been Adult Education and Lay Ministry training. Before his current placement with the Assembly, Lindsay was in ministry on the Mid North Coast of NSW, in a 50/50 congregational and presbytery role.
Lindsay has a particular interest in new ways of being church, and has been involved in trips to the UK to investigate the Fresh Expressions movement, as well as personal involvement in local emerging church groups and faith communities. Lindsay combines this interest in the future of the church with his commitment to adult education in order to challenge congregations and councils of the church to think about and plan for the exciting journey of discipleship in the 21st century and beyond!
