Key Points:

  • The VicOne team visits existing Victorian Divisional Headquarters to learn and share information about the VicOne journey.
  • Employment Opportunity – Head of Policy, Research and Social Justice.



VicOne Update

Over the last three weeks, the VicOne team has been on the road to each existing Victorian Divisional Headquarters (Western Victoria, Central Victoria and Eastern Victoria) sharing information about the time frames and approach to consolidate the three Victorian divisions into one from 10 January 2018.

The level of participation and transparency has provided valuable insights and there were some great initiatives shared around how teams, Officers and staff can best support each other throughout the next few months. The VicOne team is committed to providing existing divisional teams with clarity around the way we will operate as a single division as quickly as possible. For further information about the VicOne consolidation, please email:


Bruce Stevens (Lt-Col) Victoria State Commander.

    Who made the decision to send Higher Education down to Melbourne and why? Booth College in Sydney was doing such a good job and had so many excellent people teaching and servicing theological students alongside the Sydney based cadets. Who made such a decision? Whoever did make the decision to choose Melbourne over Sydney did they first take a good look at what was happening in Sydney or did they just choose Melbourne because that was where everything else is going. Did anyone notice that the college at Bexley North (Sydney) is in a perfect location as far as being close to the city, train station and Airport? It is all so sad, the huge value and treasure that has been lost. In the future we will have huge regrets. God’s will is not always done. People see to that
