New Rector for Parish of Saint Alban’s with Saint Aidan’s
The Archbishop of Sydney, Glenn Davies, has appointed the Right Reverend Ross Nicholson to be the Rector of the parish.
The new Rector holds a business degree, he trained at Moore College and has a Master of Theology degree. He has spent the last eleven years in the Diocese of Tasmania, as Rector of Saint John’s Launceston and being a bishop, exercising an episcopal ministry part time for the northern region of that diocese.
Prior to serving in the Diocese of Tasmania Ross was Assistant Minister at Saint Stephen’s Penrith; Minister in Residence – Rossmore Anglican Church; Rector of Saint Stephen’s Willoughby, and Area Dean Willoughby. In Tasmania he has been Rector of Saint John’s, Archdeacon – Tamar and an Assistant Bishop - Northern Mission Network. Bishop Ross will be a full time rector, fully focussed on our parish. He is currently a member of standing committee of General Synod and chair of the board of Broughton Publishing.
Ross and Jennifer Nicholson are returning to Sydney, where they both grew up, Jenny actually in Epping. They have three adult children and a grandchild. Jenny is a practitioner and teacher in the area of palliative care nursing.
It is anticipated that Bishop Ross will begin in the parish at a date in March to be determined.
Fr Paul Weaver has agreed to the Archbishop’s request to be the Acting Rector between the retirement of Fr Ross Weaver and when Bishop Ross arrives.
We thank God for the appointment, and we thank Archbishop Glenn for his caring and concern for the parish.
