About Us

 

We are a church in the Anglican tradition, and part of the Anglican Diocese of Grafton. Our flavour is more towards the ‘evangelical’ end of the spectrum - we believe that God has spoken to us through the Bible, and that it is there that we learn the truth about God, and how human beings can and should relate to him. We believe that God is unchanging, his values haven’t changed, and his intentions towards human beings haven’t changed, the things he has told us in the Bible can be trusted.

We also believe that when we pray, the powerful God of the universe hears and answers, sometimes in miraculous and inexplicable ways; we believe that God’s Holy Spirit has been poured out on people who believe in Jesus, and that through his power we have power to fulfill the mission that Jesus has given us - to share his life-changing, world-changing message with all people, right next door, and to the ends of the earth.

 
Priest in Charge,  Rev. Katie Peken , grew up in country NSW among Merinos and pole Shorthorns, but people interest her more, so she studied Psychology and English at the University of NSW.  She worked as an associate lecturer at the University of New England, before training at Moore Theological College in Sydney.  She was a lay minister at St Peter’s East Lindfield, then Family and Children’s MInister at St Jude’s Carlton in Melbourne, and Assistant Minister at Warragul Anglican Church in Gippsland, before taking up her current role.
