Notes
"The Most Rev. Harry Goodhew, Anglican Archbishop of Sydney has indicated to the members of the Synod of the Diocese of Sydney that has decided not to give assent to The Preaching and Administration of Holy Communion by Lay Persons and Deacons Ordinance 1999". Anglican Primate and Archbishop of Melbourne, Dr. Keith Rayner also commended the decision of the Archbishop Goodhew saying "If lay presidency had been permitted, the Sydney Diocese would have been isolated. It would have represented a major challenge to the constitution and the unity of the Anglican Church".

Notes
"The Anglican Diocese of Sydney has become the first Anglican Diocese to order legislation allowing lay people and deacons to preside at Holy Communion". "The synod in 1985 endorsed the principle of lay presidency. In 1987 it received a report accepting that there were no doctrinal objections or legal impediments to lay presidency and the 1993 synod said that there were significant doctrinal reasons for going ahead. The next stage is for the standing committee to bring legislation to the October [1994] session of synod".

Notes
"In November [1996], Sydney's diocesan synod rejected a compromise attempt to allow women priests to be ordained in the diocese. It also refused to accept the new Australian prayer book". The diocese, Australia's largest "has long argued against women priests on the grounds that the Bible denies headship to women in the Church or at home". "The Synod found Australia's new prayer book `not Evangelical in tone or tendency' and refused to accept it."

The Archbishop of Canterbury visited Australia to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of four dioceses: Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle and Adelaide. While in Australia the Archbishop told reporters that the international component of his "job" had grown throughout his term and he said that he believed that the time would probably come when a non-English bishop was appointed as Archbishop of Canterbury. Dr. Carey acknowledged the gift of a large bursary from the diocese of Sydney to the Lambeth bursary but expressed concern over their decision not to contribute to the core funding of the Anglican Communion. The archbishop received a traditional Aboriginal welcome to the city of Newcastle.

Notes
The author reflects on his recent visit [August 2002] to Sydney where he attended the annual Australian Religious Press Association and the pre-meeting Anglican gathering of communicators. "The most fitting word I can find to summarise my recent visit to the Anglicans in Australia is mutuality. .... In Sydney I was immediately confronted with the fact that the Anglicans in Australia are served in areas of communications by professional and committed Anglican Christians, who like so many, work sacrificially, to say the least. The multiple speeches I made over the six days enabled me to engage and help others in a mutuality that I have rarely experienced in my work over 12 years. I can remember when I felt so `ministered to' while attempting to also `minister to' people that, like me, deal with difficult and often sad situations, that can and do breed ill feelings in our respective communities". Also includes a personal appreciation of the diocese of Sydney.
