Dr Howard Guinness was a member of the influential Irish brewing family and the grandson of the missionary Henry Grattan Guinness. He trained in medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, but never practiced. He travelled to Australia in 1930, having been sent by Inter-Varsity Fellowship to develop Christian student groups on university campuses, and helped to establish the Sydney University and Melbourne University Evangelical Unions. In 1938 he married Barbara Green and was ordained in 1940. In 1949 he became Rector of St Barnabas Broadway, and then St Michael's Vaucluse in 1957. He died in Wentworth Falls, NSW.
