About the
Committee for Diocesan Evangelism

A Committee of the ROCOR Diocese of Australia and New Zealand.


Our committee focuses on evangelism, catechism, apologetics, conversions, the founding of new communities, and other similar matters, within the Diocese of Australia and New Zealand. 


Every two months, we meet to share our experiences, share our resources, and encourage each other in our respective labours across Australasia.


Members of our committee include the clergy of the English-language communities of our Diocese, laity who lead a parish or diocesan organisation within our focus areas, and laity who wish to actively contribute to work within our focus areas.
