Dr Barry Newman BSc

Movers Fortescue, N

That this Synod notes that this will most likely be the last General Synod that Dr Barry Newman BSc (Hons 1) BA (Hons 1) MSc PhD will be a representative for the Diocese of Sydney.

This Synod gives great thanks for Barry’s acute knowledge of the Scriptures, his great love for the atoning work of Christ, its centrality in his life, and his incredible enthusiasm for evangelistic ministry. In particular we give thanks that God’s amazing grace in saving him has led to his overriding concern to share the good news of the gospel.

We also give thanks for Barry’s passionate approach to the business of the General Synod, particularly in pursuing faithfulness in mission, the sacraments and theological thinking. We also note his remarkable capacity to speak without notes in a structured and informative manner without becoming loquacious or verbose.

Finally this Synod wishes God’s every blessing on Barry, and his wife Laurie, for the future.

The Rev’d Nigel Fortescue moving, Dr Robert Tong AM seconding
