Welcome to the website of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Australia.

The General Synod functions as a forum for the 23 Dioceses of the Anglican Church of Australia to consider and determine matters of common interest in the affairs of the Church, in the Church's engagement with society and concerning the welfare of our society.

On this website you can find an array of information about the wide range of activities of the General Synod and its Standing Committee, Commissions, Task Forces, Working Groups and other Committees.

Any information about Dioceses, Parishes and Anglican organisations is best obtained by contacting them direct.

If you are having difficulty finding information, you can contact the General Synod Archivist, Mrs Joanne Burgess, who works on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

She can be contacted by email (archives@anglican.org.au) or by telephone (+61 2 8267 2707).
