Our parish aims to be a welcoming and caring community of faith, living the gospel with one another and the wider community in this rural district in central Victoria. Our worship services involve Bible centred messages, sharing in Holy Communion together and encouraging one another in the faith. We seek to engage with our community and provide pastoral care to those in need. As a part of a newly formed parish partnership with Rochester/Lockington, we value the wider communion we share and seek to serve the broader communities as we live out our faith in God.
