Ministry of Deaconesses

Movers Jeffreys, I.F.

This Synod records its thankfulness to Almighty God for the ministry of Deaconesses since 1885 when the first Deaconess was ordained in Australia, and urges the dioceses in Australia to encourage the growth of the Order and draws attention to the opportunities it offers to women for service within the Church at home and overseas.
