Light for the City, Refreshment for the Soul
Matthew 5:14,16 | Acts 3:19 | Philemon 1:17
We aspire to shine for Christ and bring transformation to our community.
Welcome to South Head Anglican Parish, a community of faith for all people. We are a vibrant, generously orthodox Anglican community of faith. We blend formality with the contemporary in a spirit of warmth and good humour.
All are very welcome.
Our prayer is that when you join us, you will grow in your friendship with Jesus and his people.
South Head Anglican Parish combines St. Michael’s, Vaucluse and St. Peter’s, Watsons Bay. We gather for worship and fellowship at both locations.
