Who’s Who of Anglican Women Newcastle

The Executive Role

The Executive of Anglican Women in the Diocese of Newcastle meets four times a year (February, May, August and November), thus keeping open communication channels with women throughout the Diocese. It provides regular opportunities for women to meet and celebrate their faith through the annual Retreats, a Diocesan Service, Spring Celebrations, and Anglican Women's Sunday.

Founded in Newcastle in 1960, it is an 'umbrella' movement, open to ALL women who belong to the Anglican Church, whether or not they belong to a group.
