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.

PODCAST #14 – LOVING YOURSELF
has been added to our library
Christianity teaches us to love our neighbours as we love ourselves, but that presupposes that we know how to love ourselves. Peter Catt and Dom Fay are joined by psychotherapist, counsellor, spiritual director and artist Dr George Trippe to explore how the practice of radical self-acceptance and self-compassion is key to entering the radical mystery of an all-loving God, enabling us to truly love others and set on the path to truly become ourselves.
OUTREACH – MAY 2018
Trinity Centre Pantry, Holy Trinity Fortitude Valley
The Pantry was established over 30 years ago by the then-Rector, the late Father Trevor Bulled, who, together with a group of volunteers, began by providing daily assistance with non-perishable food and toiletries, to those for whom life was proving a struggle, those who simply didn’t have enough to eat, or who had met with some temporary crisis and had no funds.
Today, Trinity Pantry assists more than 1,000 people each year. With only small amounts of state government funding, the Pantry depends entirely on donations.
St John’s Cathedral community provides groceries each week, and volunteer assistance, but cash is also needed to support the financial assistance and also because the Pantry’s monthly shopping bill is substantial.
The Pantry prefers to buy food from local shops, because it is fresher and buying local supports the businesses which are called on for extra help. With bulk buying, our gifts will go a long way.
Can we give at least $1,000 to help the Trinity Centre Pantry this winter?
May Outreach envelopes are available at the Outreach Board in the Narthex and from St Martin’s House reception.

WEEKLY JUSTICE ISSUES
Each month, we highlight a range of weekly justice issues as a focus for community reflection and prayer. Often, these weeks are also anchored on a particular day of local, national or international attention.
Some may also include special services, at our Cathedral or elsewhere, and you may find information about these either on our WHAT’S ON page or in the pages of our monthly CCNews (see the COMMUNITY page for electronic copies).
