News from the Diocese April 2017

We are pleased to provide you our first

Website News

from the

Anglican Diocese of Central Newfoundland


44th Diocesan Synod

Our theme this year is  “Believing the Waters would Part – In Faith We Step Forward”

The people of Israel could not go back. There was nothing left to go back to. They couldn’t move forward, else they drown. Faith and action was required..they stepped forward, and the waters parted.

The imperative for us as we begin is to comprehend Jesus desire that there is no hierarchy of power or importance at any Synod of the Church・ We have each been called to be here in unity of the offering of ourselves we each made in our own in our Baptismal covenant, to do the work of God, for the People of God in the whole diocese.

The Bishop Writes


From time to time, Bishop John writes to the people of the diocese sharing information on what's happening within the Church. Other times, he writes a blog sharing inspirational moments, his thoughts of faith, to give comfort and the like.  You'll find his writings on this website under 'the Bishop writes'.

Bishop John also starts and ends each day with a prayer which he shares with you on the Diocese Facebook Page.  A link is provided throughout this website.  We invite you to make it a part of your daily devotions in the hope and with God's will that it will bring you peace, comfort and strength.
