Bernie Hughes

Connect Groups and Outreach Coordinator

Bernie came to know Jesus when he was in Year 9 and was challenged by his dad to tell someone within the next 24hours. Since then he has been telling others about the good news of Jesus. Bernie started teaching Scripture in 1983 at Jannali Boys High. He continued to teach SRE, apart from a 10-year gap, where he studied a Bachelor of Theology, pastored one church and planted another. He then taught SRE at Ulladulla High School for 22 years. He joined the team at MUBC in 2017, to support the Small Group and Outreach Ministries. His passion outside of sharing his faith is music, bike riding and surfing; of which he is spoilt for choice in Ulladulla! He is married to Michelle and they have 5 adult children between them.

Belinda Harding

Youth Coordinator

Bee is a long-time local and a lover of all things Creator and creation. She has been heading up the MUBC Youth since 2019 and counts in a privilege to share life with many incredible youth (and pseudo youth!) of our community – journeying beside them and pointing people to Jesus. Bee is currently studying a Master of Divinity through the Melbourne School of Theology and also has degrees in Teaching and Education. When she has a spare moment, she loves being outdoors, including swimming, running, hiking, gardening, camping, surfing, and walking the dog! Bee also really loves drawing, music and reading.
