Synod Staff Update

Over the past few weeks, we have embarked on the important task of aligning, defining, and prioritising the work of the Synod Office to our Future Directions Commitments. To further support this work, the role of Executive Officer – General Secretary has been expanded to include oversight of First Peoples & Engagement and the Innovation & Project Office.

Julie Porteous will continue to provide oversight of Marketing & Communications, Board Secretariat and Administrative Support across the Synod Office.

Julie, as Executive Officer – General Secretary is a member of the Synod Leadership Team. 

Importantly, a key focus for Julie in her role will be to continue to provide policy, planning and operational support to the General Secretary to facilitate the achievement of organisational and management objectives.

As always, you are welcome to contact me if you have any questions.


Rev. Jane Fry
General Secretary
