Our Pastoral Team

Pastor Barend Nieuwstraten

Senior Pastor

Barend Nieuwstraten, born in Holland in 1944. 
Studied Physiotherapy, Psychology and Philosophy at the institutions of the academy in Leiden and university in Amsterdam.
I lived in Israel in the late 1960’s and ultimately settled here in Australia in 1970.
My passion and primary interests have been biblical prophecies, the creation-account and the evolutionary debate, the meaning of the ancient Hebrew sanctuary and its application for us today, and biblical Hebrew.
I have conducted seminars and lectures for the last 30 years in these topics to local communities and universities.
Currently I am senior pastor at the city-congregation of Fountain in the City and the new  church-plant of Fountain Maroubra.


Pastor Tim Shelton

Associate Pastor

Hi I’m Tim, I grew up in the beautiful coastal city of Port Macquarie. And after finishing high school I studied nursing at Avondale College. On finishing nursing I worked for several years as an RN at the Sydney Adventist Hospital (affectionately know as the “SAN”). It was during this time I transitioned into local church ministry and now I’m a local church pastor.
I enjoy being with family and friends, getting outdoors, bush walking, visiting the beach, playing sport, riding both my bicycle and my motorbike. But most of all I really enjoy watching God transform peoples lives. I hope to see you soon.

Let us pray for you

  • do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    Philippians 4:6~7

  • But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.

    James 1:6 (ESV)

  • You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

    James 4:3

While we pray
for your request...

Without a doubt, God hears and answers prayer. Not always in the manner we expect though.
The ABC of Bible prayer is a book of encouragement and inspiration. While we pray for your request, perhaps you might listen to this book or watch Pastor Glenn Coon on the subject of prayer.
