Welcome to Newcastle Anglican Church

Anglicans offer a caring Christian presence in parishes, agencies and schools in the Hunter and Central Coast regions of New South Wales which run from the Hawkesbury River to Lake Cathie: from the Coast beyond the Burning Mountain.


The Diocese of Newcastle is one of the 23 Dioceses of the Anglican Church of Australia.


Anglicans in this region acknowledge the custodianship of the land on which the Anglican Church undertakes its ministry – the First Nations peoples – the Awabakal, Biripi, Darkinjung, Geawegal, Kamilaroi, Worimi, Garrigal and Wonnarua peoples.

Greeting from Dr Peter Stuart Bishop of Newcastle

I am delighted that you are looking at our website. Welcome!

Christians believe that human life is fashioned by an ever-deepening relationship with God the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that, being made in the image of God, all people flourish in relationships of love.

Our conviction is that God is calling the Diocese of Newcastle to flourish by grace! We know that in response to this call we need to focus our resolve, be committed to healthy ministry as a safe church, encourage inclusion, and use our resources well as we engage in 21st Century mission.

My prayer is that we will follow Christ’s call to love and respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
