The Bishop has announced that he has appointed the Rev. Scott Dunlop to be the church planter for the exciting new church to be started at North Tamworth in early 2020. Scott is currently the Senior Minister at the Parish of Gunnedah, and has served with energy and passion in the Armidale Diocese for over 20 years. In reflecting on his upcoming move, Scott said: 'This is a big step that the diocese is taking and I'm excited to be heading it up, as under God, we hold to His Word and share the good news of Jesus in order to grow a new church. My wife Jo and I have always wanted to be where Jesus wants us to be and where we can be most effective for His Kingdom, so I look forward to seeing what He will do in this new area.'
