Changes in Governance and Leadership in the Diocese and its Agencies

19 August 2020

Every day our agencies, schools and parishes collectively make a difference in thousands of lives across the Hunter and Central Coast and in regional NSW. We are privileged by so many people who offer us the  invitation to enter their lives and journey with them.

Today, Bishop of Newcastle, Dr Peter Stuart announced that the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle has undertaken a planned governance and leadership restructure of its operations.

“This restructure is aimed at enabling us to deliver on our mission more effectively with strong  collaboration across all of our activities. It will ensure the long-term sustainability of the work and assist us to manage and mitigate risk across all Diocesan activities including risks which have become more apparent during COVID-19.

The Diocesan Council has resolved that an expanded Board of the Newcastle Anglican Corporation (NAC), will become the Board of the Newcastle Anglican Schools Corporation, Anglican Care and Samaritans, and each of their related entities by 1 October 2020.”
