As we tentatively move to a less restricted ‘new normal’, liturgical ministry everywhere is in need of new life and new ministers. Here are two exciting invitations for you to consider personally, or perhaps you know someone who might be interested. Help spread the word!
When our late Bishop Bill convoked the Maitland Newcastle Diocesan Synod in 2019, the turbulent nature of the following two years could not have been predicted.
