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.

Welcome to St John’s Cathedral. The news items below highlight topics of general interest.

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.

Paul Young: Known and Loved 

Amidst all our wrestling with the big questions of life, faith, and meaning, how do we move beyond our minds to a deeper, embodied experience of what it is to simply be loved? As Dom continues the podcast’s Northern Hemisphere excursion, he joins Wm Paul Young (author of The Shack, Crossroads Eve) in his home of Washington State for a conversation about the transformative power of being known and loved at the very centre of our being.

ABM Lent & Good Friday Appeal:
Giving the gift of improved health care, education and livelihoods 

Click for more

In March each year, our Outreach Project is the ABM Lent Appeal. The Anglican Board of Mission (ABM) bases its work on doing as Christ did – caring for bodies as well as souls. The ABM Church to Church Program focuses on spirituality (souls) and the Development Program relates to the material side (or bodies). As human beings are both body and spirit, one impacts upon the other.

In 2024, ABM have chosen to place before us the needs of deprivation and vulnerability, which in many parts of the world are not optional but a daily reality.

Even before the current conflict, almost two-thirds of households in the Gaza Strip experienced food insecurity. Providing even basic food requirements was challenging, resulting in malnutrition and stunting in children.

Before the conflict in Gaza, the (Anglican) Al Ahli Hospital ran a longstanding Child Nutrition Program to help address malnutrition. A partner program, saw trained local women  visiting mothers to provide essential training in nutrition, self-esteem, communication skills and gender.

One young mother who benefited from this program, Rayan, lives  in Gaza’s impoverished Mawassi district. Until October last year, Rayan’s son, Mazen, was enrolled in the Child Nutrition Program, and Rayan received personal mentoring support. Rayan speaks of  the positive impact that these programs had, until October, when an explosion near the entrance of the hospital killed at least 200 people and compromised most aid programs:

“My son suffered from malnutrition and stunted growth. Mazen was selected to benefit from the program after being examined by the hospital’s medical team. …I was very happy to see the positive improvements in his condition.

The community mobilizer … gave me wonderful advice that had an excellent impact on my life. After I participated in the Ahli Arab Hospital program, I became stronger and able to face the bad treatment I received from my husband and his family.

With the conflict in Gaza still ongoing, these programs run by the Al Ahli Hospital remain on hold. It is expected that, once the conflict ceases, the needs will be even more significant. Our support now will ensure that these vital health care services are immediately available to the vulnerable women and children in the Palestinian Territories, when services are able to resume.

Meanwhile, other ABM-AID support to the vulnerable continues. The Diocese of Colombo in Sri Lanka provides educational and nutritional aid for children, and health care and social connection throughout communities in the north of the country.

In Kenya, the ABM partner, Anglicans Development Services Eastern (ADSE), supported the construction of a sump well next to the Kikuu River, to pump water to the nearby marketplace. This project benefited Kikuu women by reducing a 10km walk to collect clean water to less than 1km.

On Good Friday we are invited to support ABM by providing hearing aids for refugee children in Jordan through the Holy Land Institute for the Deaf. This project focuses particularly on girls – as girls with disabilities are the most disadvantaged in the camps. With improved hearing comes significantly improved communication, education, and self-esteem.

ABM-AID aim to raise $98,000 through the Lent & Good Friday Appeal. Can we help by raising at least $1,000 of that figure before Good Friday? 

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 … . 

Donations are tax deductible. ABM envelopes are available at the Outreach Board in the Narthex. Please place your donation in one of these (or your own clearly marked envelope) and give it with your offering, place it in the Donations Box, give it to a cathedral warden, or to the Cathedral Office Monday-Friday.
