About Us

The Sydney Diocesan Archives provides information storage and retrieval services to the offices and officers of the Anglican Church Diocese of Sydney.

The Sydney Diocesan Archives was created as a department within the Diocesan Registry in 1977. The Diocesan Archives works with diocesan departments, organisations, and parishes across the Diocese of Sydney.

The Diocesan Archives is the key contact for advice on all aspects of recordkeeping. The Diocesan Archivist advises on identification and preparation of records for deposit to the Diocesan Archives, or disposal. In particular, the Diocesan Archives works closely the staff of the Registry, Professional Standards Unit, Legal Services, Parish Property Services and Regional episcopal staff.

Acknowledgement of Country

Sydney Diocesan Archives would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of Country throughout Australia and within the diocese, which lies on the lands of the Kuring-gai, Eora, Dharug, and Tharawal nations. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture, and their sovereignty which was never ceded.
