Reaching Sydney and beyond with the gospel

Throughout the last century, The Department of Evangelism, now known as Evangelism and New Churches (ENC) has been at the forefront of proclaiming the Gospel within Sydney and into the wider world.

ENC is about…

  • Raising evangelists
  • Community Chaplaincy
  • Cross Cultural Networking
  • Church Planting
  • Repotting and regrowing churches

Our history…

1914 – first Diocesan Missioner appointed

1927 – Board of Diocesan Missions established

Over the next 50 years and beyond, our evangelists gave faithful service in preaching the Gospel and in training others. From the seventies through to the nineties, as the Department of Evangelism, this ministry expanded under the leadership of John Chapman, fondly remembered as Chappo. The legacy of John’s ministry grew to have a far reaching impact throughout Sydney, Australia and many other parts of the world.
