We are so excited to meet you!
Petersham AOG Church is a Church with a powerful history. Our Church is the first Assembly of God Church
in Sydney having been birthed by a group of believers who were influenced by the ministry of Smith Wigglesworth. We believe that this pioneering
spirit is at the heart of our church as we continue to step out in new and exciting ventures.
Barry Saar has been the Senior pastor at Petersham AOG Church since 1997 and has served in full time ministry since 1983. Barry is a thorough communicator of God's Word and his bible teaching motivates you
to welcome change as an agent for building church community. In his time in ministry, Barry has released 23 senior pastors and 15 church plants both locally and internationally and in addition to this, pioneered
a Network of church-planters throughout Sydney
to assist the health and growth of small to mid-size churches. Barry is a firm believer in releasing people into their calling and passionate about seeing people step into a life of freedom.
