In the grounds of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Dubbo, New South Wales, Australia is a lovely traditional Australian house which today serves as church offices and meeting rooms.
Called Brotherhood House, it was built as the home base of the Brotherhood of the Good Shepherd thanks to the generosity of the bishop of the day, Bishop Camidge. The foundation stone was laid on the 7th August, 1903, by the Governor of NSW, Sir Harry Rawson and opened on September 9th, 1906.

The Brotherhood of the Good Shepherd began began in the 1880’s when the need for the church’s presence in far reaching bush areas of the "vast district of the west’ was first noticed by by englishman, Frederick Campion. Modelling this new ministry initiative on the successful Queensland Bush Brotherhood, work began on establishing, The Brotherhood of the Good Shepherd in England. Frederick Campion and two other men, one of whom was ordained, sailed from England to Australia in late January 1902.

THe Brotherhood was formed into an Association for Religious purposes under the Companies Act of N.S.W. and a Board of Directors appointed with a Principal at its head.
The current Principal now presides over the Company of the Good Shepherd and its team of ‘companion priests’; ordained women are now included among its number and also minister in the remote regions of northwest NSW in the regions of Bourke, Brewarinna, Cobar, Nyngan, Narromine, Tottenham, Warren and Nevertire.

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is now one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South, Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

    It’s a magnificent old house Jan that you have captured well. Character galore in every corner.

  • Thank you Helen…and I’ve just put it in your group too!
    (Oh and this was taken with the camera that’s still working)
    It certainly does have character, and when you consider it’s over a hundred years old, I guess that’s not surprising is it?…xx

    Great looking place Jan.

  • Yes….it does look good doesn’t it? Spring, (just the right colour temperature), and green grass certainly helps, but it has a character and graciousness all its own. I’m glad you like it and thank you for your kind comment my friend…xxxx

  • Thank you Helen…yes, it looks pretty good doesn’t it? I think it shows it off to its best advantage…this is all for a calendar (and cards) I’m doing for the church as a fund raiser.
    So I’ll let them know you like it.

    Cheers
