St John’s Anglican Cathedral is a wonderful venue for the celebration of a marriage. St John’s is a beautiful Cathedral in the Gothic style and is situated on the edge of the Brisbane CBD.
The foundation stone was laid in 1901 and it was completed and consecrated in 2010.The Cathedral with its beautiful stained glass windows, its lofty ceilings and its tall, delicately proportioned columns is the perfect setting for the creation of beautiful memories and gorgeous photographsIt is a sacred space where a couple can exchange their solemn vows in the presence of family and friends and receive God’s blessing on their marriage.We offer a traditional Anglican service with the options of soloist or choristers and/or the ringing of bells to celebrate your special day.
To seek Baptism for either yourself or for your child is a very exciting thing. Baptism celebrates a new beginning as a member of Christ's body, the Church. When we come for Baptism we are saying "yes" to God's love and desire for us to belong to the community of God's people. To seek Baptism for a child is to say that you want to give them the gift of being part of God's family and to have God involved in their life.
Things You Need to Know Before organising a Baptism you will need to think about who you want to have as sponsors or godparents. Godparents of children have a very great responsibility. During the service they make a promise to God that the child will be brought up as a Christian. Make sure that they are aware of this before allowing them to accept the privilege of being your child's godparent.To be a godparent or sponsor a person must have themselves been baptised. If they are not baptised you may like to invite them to consider baptism for themselves.Due to the high demand for Baptism at the Cathedral arrangements usually need to be made at least 2-3 months in advance.
