Introducing Bishop Mark Calder's YEAR LAUNCH series of messages from Sunday 5th February 2023.
St Barnabas Anglican Church is delighted to introduce our new Priest to the West Wyalong community. The Reverend Steven Klouth began his full-time appointment with us on Monday 16th January 2023, with his first service to be conducted on Sunday 22nd January. Steven has moved into the parish Rectory along with his wife Caitlin and daughter Hannah. All are welcome to attend a Commissioning Service conducted by Bishop Mark Calder along with the Reverend Greg Harris of Bush Church Aid, at St Barnabas on Saturday 11th February 2023 at 11am to officially welcome Steven to our Parish. We know the people of West Wyalong will welcome this young family to our community with sincere pleasure.
From Steven and Caitlin Caitlin and I met while studying at Sydney Missionary and Bible College and have been married for 3 years. We welcomed our daughter in December 2021 and are delighting in all the ways God is growing us through parenting. I am from Sunbury (just outside Melbourne) and Caitlin is a proud Western Australian, so we bonded over our love of the Lord Jesus and AFL. I grew up in a Christian family who were regularly involved in church. Caitlin grew up in a ministry family, as her dad was an Anglican minister in rural Western Australia. Before commencing at SMBC, I did an honours degree in International Relations, and Caitlin trained as a Speech Pathologist, before working in special needs schools in WA. We both love sport, music and exploring God’s good creation. I enjoy reading about military history and Caitlin enjoys all things craft, cooking and baking. We’re passionate about teaching people the deep truths of the Bible and helping God’s people know and love Him more. Since being ordained in December 2020 I have been supported by BCA in a ministry training role as an Assistant at Holy Trinity Kelso before moving over to All Saints Cathedral Bathurst to continue my training. I have loved being able to teach, preach and care for the members of these congregations, and point them to the love, care, and sufficiency of the Lord Jesus in their lives. We are so excited to be partnering with the saints in West Wyalong to work together in our call to be and make disciples of the Lord Jesus. We’re thankful for the support of the Bush Church Aid Society as we do so and thrilled that we will be able to continue in ministry with the support and encouragement of our partnering churches. We are excited to see the Lord at work through us for His glory, as we Share Jesus for Life in West Wyalong. Steven and Caitlin
Thanks to all who were able to make it last Saturday 30th July 2022 to the diocesan conference where the strategic plan was launched. I've attached the text of the keynote address, which may be watched here (apologies for the audio quality):
As there was no presidential address this year due to the COVID disruption of synod, I trust this may be helpful and informative regarding encouragements and developments in the diocese.
Please find attached a statement from Bishop Mark regarding the 150th anniversary of our diocese. Mark said “I trust this helps many people mark this significant anniversary in an appropriate way, as we both own the past and yet look to the future with prayer that God will transform us and use us for his glory.” from_the_bishop_20200507.pdf
