Positions Vacant

We would be delighted to explore you ministering within the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle.

  • The ethos of the Diocese

    The Diocese acknowledges the traditional custodianship of the First Nations of the land on which the Diocese ministers – the Awabakal, Biripi, Darkinjung, Geawegal, Kamilaroi, Worimi, Garrigal and Wonnarua peoples. Land that stretches from the Hawkesbury River to Lake Cathie, from the coast to beyond the Burning Mountain,

    We desire deeply that everyone is safe within the community and within the church. We lament the harm that children experienced within the life of the Diocese and our failure to respond when they came forward to speak of their experience.

    We are endeavouring to see a comprehensive expression of Anglicanism develop within the Diocese. We wish to see everyone flourish by the grace made known to us by God through Jesus Christ. Our hope and prayer is that the Anglican Church will be seen to be making a valuable contribution to the region and people we serve. We are working to rebuild community trust so that this church is known for helping people seeking to deepen their faith and find blessing in their lives.

    The Diocese affirms the sacramental and preaching ministry of women and men; rejoicing that women and men are called by God to ministry as laity, deacons, priests and bishops.
