We are a Local Shared Ministry Parish made up of 6 small worship centres that includes rural, town and beach locations.

We have an enthusiastic worship team with three Priests, several Licensed Lay Ministers, Worship Leaders, with the support from Readers and Welcomers. We have a comprehensive team of dedicated people who visit all locations in our Parish bringing a variety in spiritual and leadership styles. Each service usually involves several people from our team.

Our worship services include communion, morning worship and other forms of worship depending on what is planned in each individual worship together. Sunday worship is followed by morning tea that can often be good enough for a finger food lunch.

On a 5th Sunday we join together as a parish for worship and morning tea, with each centre taking turns in hosting.
