Rev. David Ould is an ordained Anglican minister currently serving as Senior Associate Minister at St John’s Cathedral Parramatta, the longest continuous site of Christian worship in Australia since the early days of European settlement.
Born and bred in the U.K., David has lived on four continents but has made Australia his home. As well as positions in church leadership, his roles have included chairing a benevolent charity in the South West of Sydney and contributing to an ethics advisory committee for a major retail investment fund.
David has engaged in public conversation over key social issues such as marriage, abortion and religious freedom as well as commenting more particularly on the Anglican Church. His media appearances include The Drum, Lateline, the Project and SBS’s “Living with the Enemy”. He has hosted public forums at the Cathedral examining religious freedom questions and the recent NSW Abortion debate. He writes on these topics and more at davidould.net .
David’s passion is to demonstrate how clear Christian convictions guide and shape engagement in the public forum.
