Diana Barnett

Executive Director

Diana leads the operations of the church, assists Alex in leading a multi-cultural staff team and coordinates among our ministries. She also leads Growth Group clusters and is involved in parenting and women ministry initiatives at St Andrew’s.

Diana was born and bred in Hong Kong. She earned her law degrees at HKU (LL.B., PCLL) and Harvard (LL.M) and is qualified to practice law in Hong Kong, England & Wales and New York. She worked as a solicitor in Hong Kong until she felt called to be theologically equipped after the SARS epidemic. After studying at China Graduate School of Theology (MCS), Diana joined St. Andrew’s Church as a pastoral worker in 2006 and was appointed as the Executive Director in 2018.

Diana was baptized at St. Andrew’s and met an Australian man called Matt at church. Despite barely understanding his Australian accent, they managed to fall in love, are now happily married and blessed with four delightfully spirited children – Maggie, Tom, Bob and Rebecca.

Diana is passionate about unpacking the Bible, loves cooking, travelling and is interested in current affairs.
