“Not long ago I was at the door of a church greeting people as they made their way to the hall for morning tea after the service.

Archbishop's 2022 message to school staff

“I am so grateful for the work you do educating students to flourish and to serve God and the common good…Each school has its own story and culture, but there is a shared identity and purpose across the Anglican family. And, embodying what is true, gracious and lifegiving is at its heart…Every one of us is called by Jesus to participate in his Church, his body, and each of us is blessed with unique gifts and talents to carry out his mission,” says Archbishop Phillip Aspinall
