Anglican Diocese of Sydney


The Anglican Diocese of Sydney was founded in 1788, when the Church of England arrived with the First Fleet. The Sydney Diocese ran a number of children’s homes, through various committees including Church of England Children’s Homes and the Home Mission Society, and supported independent committees to run others. Since 1983 the Church of England in Australia has been known as the Anglican Church. Since 1997 its welfare arm has been Anglicare.

The Diocese of Sydney is headed by the Bishop of Sydney. It covers the Sydney basin west to Lithgow, south to Ulladulla and east to Norfolk Island.
