The Presbyterian Theological Centre in Burwood has opened its new building – and changed its name to Christ College. The Principals of Moore College, SMBC and Morling College were invited to be present for the opening on Friday night.
The college website’s new URL is christcollege.edu.au.
The appointment follows a careful, thorough and rigorous selection process by St Mark’s Council and the consent of Bishop in Council. It will be effective from 1st July 2014, and follows the resignation of the Right Reverend Dr Tom Frame…” – news from the Diocese of Canberra & Goulburn.
Archbishop of Sydney, Dr. Glenn Davies spoke of Dr Cameron as:
“both an accomplished scholar and a faithful servant of Christ. He possess an incisive mind, a firm integrity and a pervasive godliness which he brings to every task he approaches.
St Mark’s Theological Centre has chosen well and I have no doubt that Dr Cameron will continue to bless the Australian Church in his new role.”
And Moore College Principal Dr. Mark Thompson says,
“Andrew is an extraordinarily able ethicist. His contribution to Moore during more than a decade on the faculty has been of the highest quality and the most enduring character.
While we are very sorry that he is leaving us — it is a very significant loss — we are not at all surprised that others have seen the value of Andrew’s ministry and invited him to lead them.”
Dr. Allan Bryson died on Monday 17th February, in his 100th year.
He was, for many years, a stalwart member of the Anglican Church League and its Council, and served the cause of Christ in the Diocese of Sydney fearlessly in Standing Committee and in many different capacities. He was a long-serving member of the Presentation Board, and was also a member of General Synod Standing Committee and its Doctrine Committee.
Dr Bryson’s funeral will be held at St Andrew’s Roseville, at 10:30am on Monday, 24th February, 2014.
Members of the Anglican Church League, and many others, give thanks to the Lord for this faithful servant.
From his funeral notice: “The LORD preserves the faithful. Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.” – Psalm 31:23-24.
