Diocesan elections


There are many ways in which you can support the mission and ministry of the church across our 445 parishes and one of them is to help us to exercise sound governance.  We are encouraging a wide and diverse cross section of our members to become involved.  If you feel called to work collaboratively, assisting in openness of communication and ensuring clarity of decision making, then please do come forward to offer your time and talents.
