I congratulate Archbishop Freier and look forward to working with him as we bring the good news of Jesus to the nation.”Freier believes that sustaining a national presence and strengthening the church’s contribution to rural communities are among the most important challenges facing the Anglican Church of Australia.“I look forward to the opportunity of working with the church around the country. The church across its parishes, schools and service agencies makes a powerful contribution to Australian society,” Freier said.Freier, 59, has been Archbishop of Melbourne since December 2006.
