In February 2005 His Grace Archbishop Hilarion received into the Diocese clergy and parishioners of the [[Gereja Orthodox Indonesia|Indonesian Orthodox Church]] who were formerly under the jurisdiction of the [[Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia]] ([[Church of Constantinople|Ecumenical Patriarchate]]), and there are now a growing number of parishes and mission centres scattered throughout Indonesia.
 
 
The Diocese of Australia and New Zealand, as a part of the [[Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia]], is involved in [[Russian_Orthodox_Church_Outside_Russia#Rapprochement_with_Moscow||the process to reenter communion]] with the [[Church of Russia]]. The Act of Canonical Communion between the Moscow Patriarchate and the Russian Church Abroad will be signed 17th May 2007 and Liturgy concelebrated in Moscow by Patriarch Alexiy and Metropolitan Laurus, ROCA's First Hierarch. There are significant elements within the Diocese of Australia and New Zealand that are on either side of the reunion with Moscow, and any fallout from the reunion between ROCOR and the Moscow Patriarchate in the Diocese of Australia and New Zealand remains to be seen.
