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.

You may find information about our regular worship times on the SERVICES page.

The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) has listed The Cathedral and The Deanery (Adelaide House) because of their significance to the heritage of Queensland and Australia more broadly. Adelaide House was the first Government House when Queensland was created on 10th December 1859. The balcony on which Sir George Bowen read the proclamation that day has been the subject of a great deal of work to restore it to a stable and safe condition. The cathedral is the only stone-vaulted church in the Southern hemisphere and is highly regarded as a sublime example of neo-gothic architecture. Donations to the Cathedral fund are used to enhance and presence the fabric of the magnificent building.

Donations to the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) for these appeals are allowable as deductions for tax purposes.

Transforming Desire: Willie Jennings

What do we want? What sort of conditioning has shaped our wanting?

Dr Willie Jennings joins the podcast to explore how our desire has been shaped by the idea of “whiteness”; a way of being in the world that at its heart is about the vision of the self-sufficient man; self-possessed, in control, the master of all he surveys. This identity has its roots in the colonising history which sought to shape the “new world” in ways that were understandable and controllable, creating a way of being and meaning making that became intertwined with the mission and self-understanding of the Church. Willie suggests that as we respond to the pressing question, “Where does it hurt?” we will be able to reconnect with our own embodied lives, grounded in place, and deeply connected by the Spirit to the well-being of one another.

Dr Peter Kline who joins the podcast team for this episode is the Academic Dean and lecturer in Systematic Theology at St Francis Theological College in Brisbane.

Dr Willie James Jennings is a theologian, author and Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Africana Studies at Yale University. His most recent book is “After Whiteness: An Education in Belonging.”

“I was hungry and you gave me food, thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” – Matthew 25.35.

 Trinity Centre Pantry offers hope when food is out of reach.

The Trinity Pantry at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Fortitude Valley was established over thirty years ago to provide assistance 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.  Then Rector of Holy Trinity, the late Father Trevor Bulled together with a group of volunteers began by providing daily assistance with non-perishable food and toiletries, while two days each week financial assistance was available through government funded Emergency Relief and parish funds.

The Pantry is staffed entirely by volunteers, and is open Wednesday to Friday, every week (except public holidays, and January) from 11am to 2pm. In January, the Pantry is open on Thursdays from 11am to 2pm.

People who are in need because of some crisis or hard times are welcome without appointment during opening hours. They need only bring identification. There is a range of food normally available, selected from a ‘shopping list’, at no cost.

In addition, some financial emergency relief is also available during opening hours each Thursday. Limited financial assistance can be provided towards the payment of bills e.g. utilities (including electricity, gas, water, phone), rent, and PBS prescriptions.

Trinity Pantry assists over 1,000 people each year. A few people come several times a year:  Pantry suggests a delay of 3 months between visits where possible. Others access the help just once. 

There are many stories, each one unique, and some exacerbated by COVID-19. All are made welcome to receive some support to tide them over a difficult time in their lives – contributions to urgent bills, and assistance with food. Some who are helped return to offer thanks, and maybe even a donation.

With only small amounts of government funding, the Pantry depends entirely on donations. St John’s Cathedral community provides groceries regularly, and volunteer assistance, but cash is also needed to support requests for 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.

For your reflection. We invite you to reflect on this project and your response to it by completing the sentences: 

  • This project is meaningful for me because …;  and 
  • I/We can increase awareness of this need by … . 

Can we give at least $1,000 to help the Parish Pantry this winter?  Cathedral Outreach envelopes for May are available at the outreach poster in the Narthex. Please place your donation in a May outreach envelope and give it with your offering, or in the donation boxes, or give it to a Warden, or to the Cathedral Office Monday-Friday.  Cheques should be made to ‘Trinity Pantry’. Donations of $2 or more to the Parish Pantry are tax-deductible.  To obtain a receipt, please write your name and address on the back of your outreach envelope.  The receipt will be provided by the Pantry, probably around early to mid-July.

Using electronic banking, make a bank transfer to BSB: 034003  Account No: 385378;  please narrate your deposit “Outreach May22” and also email to inform us of your deposit (include the amount), and to provide your postal details if you want a tax deductible receipt. For other forms of payment, please phone the Cathedral Office [(07) 3835 2222] during normal business hours Monday-Friday.

Thank you.
