Upcoming Services:

Please note that from Monday 23rd March all public worship and parish activities across the Diocese of Melbourne was suspended, following a directive from the Archbishop of Melbourne in response to efforts to contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community.

However, with the easing of some restrictions, from the 19th May there will be opportunities during the week to access the church as a space for private prayer as well as gather in small groups for some simple acts of worship along the same liturgical pattern as the ‘Worship at Home’ resources with Holy Communion from the Reserved Sacrament. A service of Morning Prayer will be said at 10am on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and the regular service of Holy Communion will resume on Thursdays at 10am. The church will be open on these days from 9:30am until 11:30am for private prayer. These services will be restricted to 10 persons. It would be helpful if you could contact the Vicar ( or 0431 308 703) if you are intending to join.

Small weddings and funerals with immediate family only may still be conducted, please contact the Vicar directly for ministry needs.
