The Right Reverend David Robinson – 12th Bishop
This Diocese has adopted "Faithfulness in Service"
When Jesus spoke to his disciples he said they were not to be like the rulers of the day who exercised authority over others. They were to be servants of others, even as Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve.
As a Diocese we will continue to work at developing more sustainable models for ministry. This means we will have to be more flexible and creative about how we define church, how we do church and the models for we use for mission and ministry.Learn more
Basic Principles of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Rockhampton
- An intelligent, biblical and historically based faith
- An incarnational faith that cares for humanity and creation
- A faith expressed in relationship with God and each other
- Faith and pastoral practice expressed through liturgy
The Church is the fellowship that nurtures and sustains Christians as they seek to follow Christ faithfully and participate in God’s mission. Its leaders especially are to be examples of Christian faith and obedience as they exercise their vocation, in dependence on the Holy Spirit.
Our Friendly Anglican Services
As we have travelled around the Diocese, each Parish has had its own story to tell. Stories of drought, changes in the mining industry and of the struggle to keep going.
Wherever the church is, remember God is at work in his world, so let us not give up praying for and encouraging one another. It is this faith that enables us to continue in difficult times and encourages us to try new things and to love others into the kingdom.
