Presbytery Relations Minister Appointment


I'm very pleased to announce that Rev. Dr Rob McFarlane has accepted a call to the position of Presbytery Relations Minister within the Synod.

Rob is well known throughout the Synod, having served in a number of congregational placements as well as in significant Synod (Director of Continuing Education, lecturer at United Theological College) and Presbytery roles (currently Presbytery Ministry Leader in Parramatta-Nepean Presbytery).

Although the placement will not formally commence until 1 November 2022, Parramatta-Nepean Presbytery has very graciously agreed to allow the Synod to second Rob into the role on a 50% basis commencing in July and August 2022.

Rob's breadth of experience, wide networks and particular expertise will be a valuable addition to the Synod Leadership Team and I'm looking forward to working closely with Rob in this new role created to lead the Synod's work with presbyteries.


Rev. Jane Fry
General Secretary
