Parish Property

        While our churches are much more than bricks and mortar, church buildings are integral to how we do ministry in our communities. As a result, parish properties not only need to be maintained but must also adapt over time to changing ministry needs.

        In this section of the SDS website you will find the information you need to deal with new building works, renovations, leasing of parish properties, heritage matters and much more.

        Sydney Anglican Property

        Sydney Anglican Property (SAP) was formed on 1 January 2024 to provide a unified, co-ordinated approach to all diocesan property matters, from day to day parish building issues to new church developments, strategic planning, insurance, heritage and more.

        SAP brings together the staff and functions previously spread across the Anglican Church Growth Corporation, the Anglican Church Property Trust, New Churches for New Communities and St Andrew's House Corporation.

        As a result, SAP is now a one stop shop for property-related matters across the Diocese, ensuring we are able to provide parishes with better, more co-ordinated services, while retaining an emphasis on innovative projects that help people to know the real Jesus.

This is due to the fact that many of the policies, guidelines and other property-related documents were created and given effect by the former ACPT.
