NSW & ACT Branch

Special announcement

It is with mixed joy and sadness that today we announce the resignation of Rev Canon Malcolm Richards as General Secretary of CMS NSW & ACT.

Malcolm has been appointed to the role of the Archbishop of Sydney’s Bishop for International Relations by the Archbishop of Sydney, the Most Rev Dr Glenn Davies. Malcolm has also accepted the role of Director for the Centre for Global Mission at Moore Theological College.

We give thanks for Malcolm’s faithful leading of our Branch for the past eight years, since his appointment in 2011. He leaves the Branch with the blessing of our Board.

During this period of transition, our vision to see a world that knows Jesus remains the same. As we prayerfully search for a General Secretary to replace Malcolm, our Fellowship of supporters, missionaries and staff will continue to work together to see Jesus Christ proclaimed throughout the world.

Please pray for Malcolm and his wife Elizabeth as they navigate this transition, and for the Board of CMS NSW & ACT as they seek God’s leading in searching for a replacement General Secretary.
