The Church of England (Anglican) Diocese of Newcastle was formed around 1800. It was responsible for the operation of several children's homes in the Hunter and Manning River areas of New South Wales.

Details

Children's homes run by the Church of England/Anglican Diocese of Newcastle included St Christopher's Home for Little Children, Morpeth Home for Children, St Alban's Home for Boys, St George's Training Farm Home for Boys and St Saviour's Children's Home.

Some records from these Homes are now held by the University of Newcastle Archives.

The Diocese of Newcastle also supported the Church Army and the Sisters of the Holy Cross, which ran St Elizabeth's Home for Girls and St Saviour's Children's Home.
