Church and community

The church must always be a community within a community. We are a community of faith that exists within the broader community of South Perth and beyond. As such, we exist not for ourselves, but for those around us, and we are called to reach out into the community around us to live out what we believe. We are called to feed the hungry, tend the sick and the elderly, and to care for those in need.

We do that by supporting aid and development programmes through the Anglican Board of Mission, Anglicare, St Bartholomew’s House, Parkerville Children and Youth Care, the Mission to Seafarers, and Amana Living, who are able to most effectively make a difference on our behalf. Within South Perth, we provide ministry to local nursing homes and aged care facilities, and the South Perth Community Hospital. The parish financially supports an aged care chaplaincy programme operating in neighbouring parishes, and chaplaincy programmes in our local government schools.
