Bunbury Bulletin September 2019

by The Reverend Dr Lucy Morris

August was a busy month for the Diocese of Bunbury as the annual pre-Synod briefings took place around the Diocese.

Meetings were held on each Saturday of the month in Dunsborough, Oyster Harbour in Albany, Kojonup and Mandurah to which Synod representatives and clergy were invited along with any other interested parish members.

The Diocesan Secretary The Revd Dr Lucy Morris provided an update on the anticipated matters being brought to the 2019 Synod in October, to get final feedback on proposed legislative changes, answer any questions and to listen to the concerns of the people before finalising the agenda for Synod. Papers are being made available the week commencing 9 September 2019.

Bunbury’s Diocesan Synod is being held at the Frederick Irwin Anglican School in Mandurah for the second Session of the 40th Synod from 4-6 October. It will be Bishop Ian Coutt’s first Synod in the Diocese as President of Synod.

As announced last month, The Revd Sally Buckley has moved to the Parish of Denmark-Walpole from Esperance to join the Diocese of Bunbury and her Recognition Service took place in the parish church on 23 August 2019.

The Revd Wayne Warfield left the Parish of Busselton at the end of July after 15 years of service.

The Diocese also currently has full-time Priest-in-Charge vacancies in the two Parishes of Dunsborough and Busselton and a part-time position in Parish of Collie. If you are interested and would like more details, please contact The Ven Julie Baker through the Diocesan Office on 08 9721 2100.
