At St James, we believe marriage is a gift from God for the good of people. Under Australian law, every marriage is the same— ‘the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life.’ Nevertheless, each couple approaches a wedding day with their own particular background, assumptions and concerns. Our ministers are available to discuss what is involved in being married at St James. If you are interested or would like to know more about what is involved contact the office or download our wedding information sheet.
A funeral is an occasion to mourn a person’s death, to show sympathy with the bereaved, and to be reminded of the Bible’s teaching about our own death and judgement and the Christian hope of resurrection. A funeral service is sometimes held at a crematorium or graveside, sometimes in a church, and sometimes at the premises of the funeral director. St James and its ministers conduct funerals according to the services authorised by the Anglican Church of Australia. Contact the church office to discuss availability of our church or ministry team.
At St James we want to use our facilities to serve our community. St James church hall can accommodate up to 200 people standing or 120 seated, and is available for hire for a range of functions, subject to availability and some conditions. We do not take Sunday bookings. Contact the church office for more information or download our hall hire information sheet.
