At St Paul's our varied parish ministries are our witness to Christ Incarnate and an extension of our worship. Our parish ministries are inclusive and welcoming, as we seek to share God's love with others. As a parish we have committed 10% of our annual income to the support of the following activities, for as God has blessed us so we seek to be a blessing to others.

Children's Ministry

When: Sundays 9.30am   /   Where: At the back of the Church near the Font

Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me’. In faithfulness to our Lord’s invitation the parish has Children's activities available at the back of the church near the font at 8.00am. Materials are also available for children whose parents attend the 9.30am service.Resources used include Workbook for Kid's Church written and distributed by The Anglican Parish of Mossman/Port Douglas, Qld. Materials are placed on the children's table for their use during the service. Parents are welcome to engage their children in these activities which are directly related to the days lectionary readings.

Rising Nepal / SMD School

When: All year round   /   Where: Boudha, Kathmandu, Nepal

Since the earthquakes April 2015 St Paul's has been helping support a teacher mentorship program in SMD School.

Anglican Board of Mission

The parish supports the mission of the wider church in Australia and overseas through the Anglican Board of Mission. Parishioners are asked to save their used stamps and place them in the box at the back of the church. This is a practical way that we can help raise funds for ABM. Envelopes for donations are available during Lent and before Christmas.

Chalmers Road Special School

Chalmers Rd, Special School, located in Strathfield, is a government run K–12 school for children with profound intellectual and behavioural problems. Most of these children and their families live in and around our local area. They require very specialised training and education with specialist equipment, most of which is very expensive. Eg a specialist walking frame for one child can start at $8000 and is often much dearer, wheel chairs commonly start at $15,000. Few families can afford such equipment. Many of the students are autistic. There is continual need for weighted blankets and items of clothing. These are a simple calming measure for children who can often become very agitated. We can make these at a very low cost. If you would like to know more about Chalmers Road you might like to speak to Rosemary King
