New Managing Director for MHPL

The Board of the Mathew Hale Public Library (MHPL) met on Saturday, 30 September, to give thanks for the life and ministry of Alex Crawford. The board is unanimous in its resolve to honour the legacy left to us by Alex and together we are emboldened to continue this work. 

We are very pleased to announce that Mr Stephen Woodward was appointed as the first Managing Director of MHPL. Stephen will take on the role of leading and coordinating the work of the library to promote biblical preaching and biblically shaped leadership in the Anglican Church of Southern Queensland.

Born and raised in Brisbane, Stephen holds a Bachelor in Business with majors in human resources and industrial relations, and works as human resources and workplace health and safety advisor for Giant Bicycles Australia. Stephen and his wife Natasha are members of St. Andrew's South Brisbane.

The Rev. Dr Hugh Begbie will continue as Chair of the MHPL board, and the role of Company Secretary will be filled by current board member Mr John Stenning.

Please join with us in praying that the cause of Christ would be honoured and that God would be pleased to bring renewal to his church through this work.
