The Archdeaconry stretches along Port Phillip Bay from Port Melbourne to Cheltenham. It encompasses a number of small village centres with lots of coffee shops and cafes. From Station Pier where the cruise ships berth to St Kilda marina, Luna Park, the iconic Brighton bathing boxes and much more... There is a lot to see and experience.
Some of Melbourne’s most historic churches grace these suburbs and offer a range of worship from traditional to contemporary, many with superb music and choirs. A number of parishes run welfare and community support programs and some have close connections with Anglican schools.
Visitors are welcome, please check the local web site for Service times.
