The LaughingBird Resources Writer

G’day. My name’s Nathan Nettleton and I write or compile the materials offered at LaughingBird Liturgical Resources. I am pastor to the South Yarra Community Baptist Church, a small congregation located in an inner-city neighbourhood of Melbourne, Australia.

I’m married to Margaret Welsford and we have one adult daughter, Acacia, and two dogs.

I have gained a Master of Theology degree from the University of Divinity for studies in Liturgical Theology. I was ordained by the Baptist Union of Victoria in 1994.

I’m a member of the Baptist World Alliance Study Commission on Worship & Spirituality. I am also a member of the Australian Academy of Liturgy and Societas Liturgica and I represent the Baptist Union of Australia on the ecumenical Australian Consultation on Liturgy (ACOL), and I represent ACOL on the English Language Liturgical Consultation.
