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 – DECEMBER 2017
THIS MONTH OUR CATHEDRAL SUPPORTS
the Act for Peace Christmas Bowl Appeal
Act for Peace is the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia, and the organisation responsible for the Christmas Bowl Appeal.
Hospitality and gift giving are some of the great hallmarks of the Christmas season. During this time we invite, or are invited,
to share food and gifts with family and friends. As we do so, it may be easy to overlook that a critical practice of hospitality is the welcome extended
to the stranger.
As Christians, we are invited to recognise the face of Christ in and through the situation of the vulnerable, including the hungry, the sick, the stranger,
and the refugee.
Christmas Bowl Appeal envelopes
are available at the Outreach Board in the Narthex and from St Martin’s House reception.
