Who We Are
Welcome to the Diocese of North West Australia.
The diocese covers around two million square kilometres, stretching from Dongara in the south, Kununurra in the North, and east to the Northern Territory and South Australia borders.
As a member of the Anglican Church, we’re excited about our commitment to sharing the good news of Jesus with our community. We would love to welcome you at any of our churches as we join together to hear God’s word, pray, and encourage one another in Christ.
What We Believe
We’re a conservative evangelical diocese committed to the gospel and the ministry of the Bible as the word of God.
We seek to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and make him known.
As Anglicans, we believe in the theology of the Book of Common Prayer and adhere to the doctrinal basis of the 39 Articles. We are also committed to the Jerusalem Declaration as a contemporary expression of our theological beliefs.
WHAT WE DO
jesus said Our primary task is, ‘to make disciples of all nations’.
We seek to bring the good news of Jesus to our own local ‘nations’; miners, short term workers, tourists, seafarers, and new residents. It’s a great joy to meet the variety of people that we share the north west with, and an even greater joy, and privilege, to share the good news of Jesus with them.
Our work is shaped by the Great Commission — Jesus’ last words to his followers (Matthew 28:18-20).
Here’s a Snapshot of How We Do It
