Unity of three churches in one Parish



The Anglican Parish of Quamby

Three churches – one Parish


We are asking for your help to save our 3 Churches, 1 Rectory, 1 Hall and 2 graveyards.

The Anglican Diocese of Tasmania estimates it will need approximately $8 million for the National redress scheme to provide financial support to the victims of sexual abuse.  There are 75 churches in Tasmania to be sold and this will affect all 48 Parishes in the Diocese.  Parishes will also provide funds from previous property sales and cash reserves.

To our great distress, all our churches, Westbury, Hagley and Carrick have been placed on the sale list.  This has caused concern to the Parish, the community and those who have loved ones buried in our graveyards and cemetery. 

We have been advised by the Bishop and the Registrar, there is a chance to save these churches with a concrete proposal by the following method;

A. Finding funds for the redress scheme of approx. $216,000.00

B.     Submitting detailed submissions why we should keep

our churches open.

C.    Become a sustainable Parish by finding 2 years Stipend for a Priest,

which will be $90,000.00 per annum

Parish Council are working on these items to achieve the required result.


Individual members of the community are invited to write to the Registrar prior to 1st September, 2018 stating why these places of worship and spiritual comfort should not be closed.  This is a tangible way to assist us in our submission.

Letters should be addressed to

The Registrar,

Anglican Diocese of Tasmania,


HOBART. 7001


You are also encouraged to join us at any of our Worship Services.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Dear Rev. Jo,



My question to you is, are you thinking of ways to invite your community to explore Life, Faith, and Jesus? Have you been thinking about running the Alpha course in Term 3 2018? Alpha has been renewed, with fantastic new video clips in the form of the Alpha Youth Series 2.0 (2017) and the Alpha Film Series (2016). 


I invite you and the Christian leaders of North and North-West TAS to participate in a Small Group Training Event. I will be hosting three Small Group Training events in some great locations.




Sheffield Bible Chapel, Sheffield on Thursday the 12th of July from 6:30pm - 9:00pm. 


Meander Valley


St Andrews Anglican, Westbury on Monday the 23rd of July from 6:30pm - 9:00pm.


Central Coast


The Rock Community Church, Penguin on Wednesday the 8th of August from 6:30pm - 9:00pm. 


The training is fun, interactive, and informative. Snacks and Hot Drinks will be supplied on the night. At the training, I will update you with the global vision for Alpha as well as updating you with some great stories  of Alpha's local impact here in Tasmania. Lastly, it wouldn't be Alpha without questions - please come along with questions. 


Small Group Training includes


? What is Alpha? 

? Why Alpha is different to any other Small Group. 

? How to effectively plan & run your Alpha. 

? How to get the best out of hosting Alpha Small Groups. 

? New Alpha resources found at Alpha Builder

? Culture of invitation in your local church.
