The Diocese of Bathurst covers a large proportion of regional NSW covering Bathurst, south to Oberon and Cowra; north to Coonamble; and west to Cowra and Eugowra; and to the east Lithgow, with major regional centres including Orange, Dubbo, Bathurst, Mudgee and Lithgow.
This role will be based in Bathurst. With a population of more than 40,000, Bathurst is Australia’s oldest inland city. It is less than a three-hour drive from Sydney, making it close enough to access but far enough away to retain its unique regional feel. Bathurst is a major education centre with a large number of schools and a University (CSU).
