What kind of ministry can you do?


I am happy to consider any way of helping but for a list go to my Ministry Options page




What are your fees?


Whatever can be afforded is welcome or the Sydney Diocesan remuneration guidelines may help.

• The recommended rates for ministers who take occasional services are - one service $ 90, two or more in a half day $120, for a whole day $180.

• Travel Expense - If the total return journey is not more than 75 kilometres, a travelling allowance of 80 cents per kilometre should be paid. If further kilometres are travelled, the amount of the travelling allowance should be determined at a rate mutually agreed upon.

• Consideration should be given to reimbursing tolls incurred, providing meals where necessary and accommodation expenses.

• Any payment should be made to the designated body rather than directly to the minister concerned.
