Orr, Peter



full name

  • Peter Orr


  • I am married to Emma, and we have four sons. I grew up in Northern Ireland and was converted through a combination of reading the NT and attending a Billy Graham meeting. My early, clear experience of the power of God’s word has given me a deep conviction of the importance of Bible teaching. After university in England, I was a missionary for two years in Galaţi in Romania in the early 1990s. I studied at Moore in the mid-2000s before returning to the UK to complete a PhD at Durham university. We then moved to Melbourne where I taught at a Bible college before returning to Moore in 2014. As a family we enjoy serving together at All Saints Petersham as well as holidays at the beach. I enjoy reading biographies and fiction and listening to the music of the Gloaming.
