What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites to which we link.

Week of 12 May 2002


Anglicans Together—Promoting Inclusive Anglicanism: 'The Diocese of Sydney is profoundly influenced by Evangelicalism. Anglicans Together supports the idea that the Anglican Church is a church both catholic and reformed. It allows for difference as described in the Lambeth Quadrilateral. We wish to show that our God, as seen in the Lord Jesus Christ, is not a God that can be defined by one point of view but the genius of the Anglican style is that we can draw upon the revelation of God to all God's people'. The site includes a newletter, information about events, an online journal in PDF, and more.

The Movement for the Ordination of Women in Sydney Founded in Sydney in 1983, 'the name and to some extent the impetus for its formation came from the Movement for the Ordination of Women in the United Kingdom... It was principally built however on the inspiration and commitment of already existing Anglican groups and individuals in a number of dioceses, such as Women and Holy Orders in Adelaide and Anglican Women Concerned in Sydney'.
