Rev Tommi Vuorinen is the pastor in charge of St Andrews, Brisbane City, since 2019.
After his theological studies and ordination in Helsinki, Finland, Pastor Tommi served in Finland and Sweden. Pastor Tommi has served the Lutheran Church of Australia since 2008, when he moved to Brisbane to be a pastor for the Finnish speaking congregation in Brisbane. He also serves in the Commission on Theology and Inter Church Relations.
In the heart of pastor Tommi’s thinking is the liberating and transforming power of God’s grace and love that breaks through every obstacle. Whatever our life situation, God is with us and for us. This is what we experience in our services, when God serves us through his word and sacrament. This is what we experience in our everyday lives, as we live and breathe in God’s world. This is the reason we want to give our gifts and abilities to serve others.
