Anglican Diocese of Armidale

The Anglican Diocese of Armidale exists to glorify God by introducing people to Jesus and helping them home to heaven.



The Diocese takes seriously Christ’s command to “make disciples of all nations”. In response to His command there are people from the Diocese currently serving in a number of countries around the world and among Indigenous people in Australia.

Parishes and special districts across the Diocese support a great many mission organisations, foremost among these are the Church Missionary Society (CMS), the Australian Board of Mission and the Bush Church Aid Society of Australia (BCA).

There is a mutuality in the Diocese’s relationship with BCA. While parishes and special districts support its work financially, BCA provides assistance for the Diocese’s ministry at Lightning Ridge.

As well as the support provided to mission activity more generally, the Diocese is linked to, and actively supports, the work of the North Kigezi Diocese in Uganda.
