Bishop Greg ThompsonWe give you praise O God, we have a Bishop!

Bishop Gregory Edwin Thompson, currently serving as Bishop of the Northern Territory will be enthroned as the Thirteenth Bishop of Newcastle on Sunday 2nd February 2014.

We eagerly await Bishop Thompson’s arrival and pray for him and his wife Kerry as they make preparations to be with us.  Fr David has been in touch with Bishop Thompson to offer him our congratulations and welcome.

Bishop Thompson received very strong support from both the clergy and the laity at the Election Synod.  Bishop Thompson said,  ‘‘I accept the synod’s decision and with God’s love and grace come to be among you as a servant leader… It is a privilege to come home and serve God’s people there.’’
