The Very Rev. Michael Davies

Anglican Dean of Ballarat

The Very Rev’d. Michael Davies has served as the Anglican Dean of Ballarat since February 2022.


Ordained priest in the Diocese of Newcastle NSW in 2000, Michael has served as rector in both rural and urban parishes. Between 2012-2014, Michael enjoyed a two year stint in sector-ministry as an Associate Chaplain with the Mission to Seafarers at the Port of Newcastle, before returning to parish ministry on the NSW Central Coast.

Michael enjoys walking around Lake Wendouree, listening to classical and choral music - especially that of Edward Elgar - and finishing the day with the occasional glass of Ballantines and soda.
