General Secretary

Rev. Jane Fry

Rev. Jane Fry commenced as General Secretary of the Synod of NSW and the ACT on 1 September 2017. This followed five years as Associate Secretary of the Synod.

Jane was ordained as a Minister of the Word on 28 November 1995 and since then has worked in a number of ministry settings, including congregational ministry, police chaplaincy and presbytery leadership. Her ministry experience has given her a very broad perspective on the opportunities and realities facing the Uniting Church today.

Jane believes that the vision and call of the Uniting Church presented in the Basis of Union remains as compelling and current as when it was first presented to the church. The particular challenge of telling and living the story of God’s reconciling love within and beyond our gathered communities is an essential witness in a divided and dividing world. Forming disciples with a passionate imagination, creativity and commitment to changing the world in God’s image is core business for the church in these times.
