The Diocese of the Southern Cross is a new Anglican diocese in Australia unaffiliated with the Anglican Church of Australia. It is to be led by a former Archbishop of Sydney, Glenn Davies.[1] The diocese was formed by GAFCON Australia in August 2022, following a split from the Anglican Church of Australia over same-sex marriage among other issues.[2]

The diocese is backed by the Sydney diocese and the Bishop of Tasmania, Richard Condie.[3][4]

It currently has one congregation in Beenleigh, Queensland.[5]
