WELCOME TO ST JOHN’S ANGLICAN CATHEDRAL, BRISBANE
St John’s Cathedral is home to a community which seeks to bring the best of Anglican tradition into dialogue with the issues and needs of our day.
We strive for open-minded conversation, seek to practice inclusion, and reflect on how we might see our beliefs put into action. We want this to be a place where people are encouraged to seek God and progress their own spiritual journeys.
The Cathedral itself, a renowned Brisbane landmark, serves as a magnet, where diverse people gather to worship, celebrate, seek solace, converse and learn.

COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE
FOR NON-VIOLENT LIVING
Community of Practice is a small group of people who wish to commit to non-violent ways of being in the world, and who are seeking a place to grow in courage, wisdom and commitment to a non-violent way of life in a safe and supportive community.
The Cathedral Community of Practice is evolving and responding to the needs of the group. It has been decided that because the practice of meditation and gathering more frequently are both important to the group, from October 2017 Community of Practice will begin meeting straight after meditation every Tuesday evening.
Meditation group commences at 6:45pm in the Lady Chapel of the cathedral whenever it is available, and Community of Practice will follow in St Martin’s House at the conclusion of meditation at 7:30pm.

OUTREACH – OCTOBER 2017
THIS MONTH OUR CATHEDRAL SUPPORTS
Mercy Community Services’ ROMERO CENTRE
SAFETY and SUPPORT for asylum seekers in Brisbane
Asylum seekers are real people, with real stories. They seek the safety we enjoy. People who flee from dangerous countries are trying to escape persecution.
It’s as simple as that.
Asylum seekers face complicated challenges and uncertain futures. The Romero Centre in Dutton Park provides a warm welcome and customised support for people seeking asylum in Brisbane.
Everyone has the right to feel safe, supported and welcome. We try hard to welcome those who come into the Cathedral.
Can we help the Romero Centre to show
that same welcome to those seeking asylum in Brisbane?
Cathedral October Outreach envelopes are now available at the Outreach Board in the Narthex and from St Martin’s House reception.
ANTI-POVERTY WEEK 2017
“ON THE WAY” PODCASTS COLLECTION GROWING
Earlier in 2017, St John’s Cathedral launched our collection of podcasts titled “On the Way”… a series of recorded conversations exploring the deeper mysteries of faith, meaning, and beauty which people from all over the world will be able to listen to on their smartphone or computer.
Through our Sunday Conversations, the series has now accrued six engaging and informative discussions, with more to come! A full summary of the podcasts appears in each month’s edition of CCN (Cathedral Community News) and we will be posting more information on this website in the near future.
WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE
Throughout 2017 we have been busily researching options to build and design our new site. The essentials are now in place and much of the new cyber-structure retains its familiar architecture and content.
Much work remains to be done, with some resources (such as Sermons) to be reloaded and new ones planned to be added. This site will, therefore, be a ‘work in progress’ for a little while yet, so please ensure you refresh your browser on your next visit.
Our thanks to the broader St John’s Cathedral communities for your patience during this time.
