With creativity, courage and conviction,
Sydney Presbytery is training its people,
empowering its congregations and faith communities
and providing leadership and property resources,
for innovative, effective and growing ministry.
Welcome to the Presbytery of Sydney. Sydney Presbytery is part of the Uniting Church in Australia and covers the geographic area of the Sydney CBD and surrounding areas.
Sydney Presbytery is the regional forum for Congregations to act together with Creativity, Courage and Conviction. These joint activities include: ministerial settlements, help and encouragement for Mission, approval and encouragement of candidates for ministry, help with and approval of property matters, and the pastoral care of ministers.
A key area of mission for Sydney Presbytery is Tertiary Chaplaincy in the University of Sydney, the University of New South Wales and the University of Technology. More information on this ministry is found at the Christian Students Uniting website.
Representatives from every Congregation determine the Presbytery policy in regular meetings.
Rev Niall Reid is our Presbytery Chairperson and Mr David Hay our Executive Secretary. We also employ Rev Neil Ericksson as Presbytery Minister and Rev Kent Crawford as Mission and Evangelism Resource Officer.
