  • Anglican Aid CEO appointed Honorary Canon of St. Andrew’s Cathedral

    The Rev. Tim Swan, CEO of The Archbishop of Sydney’s Anglican Aid, has been made an Honorary Canon of St. Andrew’s Cathedral by Archbishop Glenn Davies in recognition of Tim's service in the Dioceses of Sydney and Chile and his role in Anglican Aid.

    Canon Swan joins an esteemed group representing significant ministries in Sydney and further afield, including most recently Canon Daniel Willis (2018) and Canon Simon Manchester (2019).

    Author: Tim Swan, CEO

    In the centre of Sydney, protesters have gathered for the past two weeks. Once unremarkable, during a nervous time of social distancing it is a bold (perhaps unwise or worse) indication that parts of our society are desperate to be heard.

    The subjects of the rallies were different but the questions were the same: Are we equal? Are we all entitled to the same privileges? Are we all welcome?  Christians have the honour of being able to say, Yes. In Christ we are those and more. (In the world the answers are much less positive.)
