  • Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile. Mother Teresa MC


The Anglican Communion

The official website of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Here you will find news and information about the life and ministry of our Anglican/Episcopal family of Churches in more than 165 countries. These 'Member' Churches or 'Provinces' – comprising some 85 million people – are autonomous and share doctrine, ways of worshipping and mission in common. Finding a focus of unity in the Archbishops of Canterbury, Churches relate to each other directly, and also through regular meetings of the Instruments of Communion.

The Anglican Church of Australia

The General Synod functions as a forum for the 23 Dioceses of the Anglican Church of Australia to consider and determine matters of common interest in the affairs of the Church, in the Church's engagement with society and concerning the welfare of our society. On this website you can find an array of information about the wide range of activities of the General Synod and its Standing Committee, Commissions, Task Forces, Working Groups and other Committees.

Anglican Women

Anglican Women is an 'Umbrella Organisation' for the various women's groups and ministries in the Diocese. Anglican Women aims to unite women throughout the Diocese with opportunities for: worship and learning, fellowship with all women within the Diocese and beyond giving through our Thank You boxes.


Mothers Union

By supporting marriage and family life, especially through times of adversity, we tackle the most urgent needs challenging relationships and communities. Our members are not all mothers, nor all women. Single, married, parents, grandparents, and young adults just beginning to express their social conscience. For all 4 million members what Mothers' Union provides is a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community - through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in programmes that meet local needs.


The Samaritans Foundation

The Samaritans Foundation Vision is for communities where there is love, peace, justice, reconciliation and dignity for all people, where there is care for the vulnerable and their environment and where each individual has the opportunity to contribute and participate fully in community life.  They seek to provide unconditional support to people in their needs and to promote social and economic policies. Samaritans values of Compassion, Integrity, Justice act as our tagline and describe the principles behind our work locally.


S Stephens Adamstown

S Stephens Adamstown is one of the neighbouring Parishes with whom we share a number of areas of ministry including a healing Eucharist. They celebrate our catholic heritage; the sacraments given to us by Christ himself, and the historic orders of ministry, worship God in Three Persons, and we use all our sense and sensibilities to do that. They affirm it is essential that worship in any form be at least in part a celebration. 

St Peters Hamilton

St Peters Hamilton

St Peters Hamilton is another near neighbor with whom we share a number of areas of ministry including the healing Eucharist. The too celebrate the catholic heritage of the Anglican tradition, and are a vibrant inner city parish.


St John’s Raymond Terrace

The Parish of St John the Evangelist, is another friend in the diocese with whom we have the joy of being able to work together and share in important aspects of ministry


Facing the Future

To you who have experienced abuse I want you to know as a Diocese we feel shame and profound regret that people within the Church harmed you and harmed you again when you came forward to speak of what had happened.
