The Dean and Chapter of St George’s Cathedral are pleased to announce that the Archbishop of Perth, the Most Reverend Kay Goldsworthy AO, has approved the appointment of the Reverend Steven Hilton, Cathedral Curate at Manchester Cathedral, United Kingdom, to be the next Precentor of St George’s Cathedral, Perth, Western Australia.

As Precentor, Steve will contribute fully to the ministry and mission of St George’s Cathedral as a senior member of the Cathedral clergy. He will exercise a ministry of pastoral care and outreach, primarily through shaping and leading worship that gives glory to God and responds to the needs of our different congregations, our City and our Diocese.

Given the uncertain timeline with regard to immigration and COVID matters, the date of Steve’s installation has not yet been fixed but is hoped to be in the middle of 2022.
