Father Rod Bower

Father Rod Bower

Anglican priest, Rector of Gosford, Social Justice Warrior

The Venerable Rod Bower is the social media-friendly Rector of Gosford, where he has served for 19 years, and Archdeacon for Justice.

He's committed to building social and cultural capital and contributing to the evolution of an Australia where there is respect, peace and harmony.

Since 2013, Father Rod has been using his church signs (and Twitter and Facebook handles) to send a message on a number of social justice and human rights issues, gaining worldwide notoriety in the process.

In October 2018, he announced he would be running as an independent candidate for the senate at the next federal election in an attempt to give ethics more prominence in Australian politics.

Father Rod will speak at the next Communities in Control conference in May 2019.
