Welcome to the Diocese of The Murray

We are a family of disciples of Jesus Christ serving communities in South Australia from Renmark through the Adelaide Hills, across to the coast at Seaford, down through the Fleurieu Peninsula and the Coorong to Mt Gambier and Port MacDonnell, and across to the state border.

Welcome to our Website

This Sunday (5th June) is Pentecost,

This is the day the church celebrates the gifting of the Holy Spirit, which empowered the first followers of Jesus and transformed them from a group of men and women who were cowering in the Upper room in Jerusalem where Jesus had held his last supper with them into a group willing to proclaim the death and resurrection of Jesus even if it cost them their lives. What an amazing transformation. The church, that is the people of God who proclaim Jesus as Lord, is now empowered with the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead!!

We in the Diocese of The Murray need to allow the self same Spirit of God to blow through our Diocese, and our parishes and our people, so that, like the first followers of Jesus, we too might be changed and transformed.

This weekend we held our Diocesan Synod. This is the annual governing body of the church here in The Murray. We come together from all over the Diocese to make sure that we are doing the mission and ministry of God. Today I was able to announce a new direction for our Diocese. The address can be sourced here. Along with my address a paper from the Canon Theologian The Rt. Rev'd Dr. Stephen Pickard can be found following my address. There will be additions to this part of our website from time to time.

As the website continues to be updated, and I do encourage you to look around at what we have to offer. I encourage you to especially look at the various resources such as my sermons which can be accessed here in video format from YouTube. Bishop Michael's Shofar is also available and is a great resource for reflecting on God's word.

With every blessing to you all
