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.

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.
