Although church historians have generally understated the contributions of the laity, this thesis argues that the evangelical Anglican Diocese of Sydney during the 1960s and 1970s embraced a profound change of focus. It explores a number of themes that have revealed the gradual realization of the importance of laypeople for the church's ministry and mission. These include ministry to youth, evangelism and outreach, preaching and teaching, training, community activities and social concern, women's ministry and the influence of the charismatic movement.
