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 Centenary

What has become known as the Diocese of Armidale was first part of the Diocese of Australia then the Diocese of Newcastle followed by the Diocese of Grafton-Armidale. In 1914 Grafton and Armidale separated and Armidale became a Diocese in its own right. 2014, therefore, marked the centenary of the Diocese.

Articles on the early years of the Diocese up until its separation from Grafton and ministry in Armidale from the time of the visit of the Bishop of Australia, Bishop William Broughton, in 1845 are available from time to time.
