The election Synod to elect the next Archbishop of Sydney begins on Tuesday 4th May 2021.

Please uphold in prayer each of the men who have been nominated, and also pray for the whole synod process, that it might be honouring to the Lord and for the good of his people.

The ACL’s position on the Archbishop’s election is that we have no preferred nominee but encourage much prayer for each of these brothers in Christ.

Those nominated are:

The Rt Rev Chris Edwards. (Nominators’ website.)

The Rt Rev Peter Hayward. (Testimony, Daniel 8, Preaching at the Cathedral, Pastoral heart. *)

The Very Rev Kanishka Raffel. (Nominators’ website.)

The Rt Rev Dr Michael Stead.

For your convenience, after each name, we’ll add links above to websites set up by those commending them for the office, when we become aware of them.

(* Peter’s nominators have circulated these four links to Synod members.)
