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.

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.

ReWilding the Church:
Steve Aisthorpe

Rewilding is about letting natural processes have their way and shape the landscape. Steve Aisthorpe, mission development worker for the Church of Scotland and author of “Rewilding the Church”, joins the podcast to explore how the same principle could be a creative force for life in the ecosystem of faith and mission. Metaphors are powerful and this conversation brings this metaphor into dialogue with the issues of our time. There is no clear roadmap proposed, but rather an attentiveness to what is emerging and how we might be part of re-imagining the landscape of the church through the transformative and unpredictable power of the Spirit.

 “A humanitarian crisis of incredible proportions is unfolding before our eyes.”
Mary Ellen McGroarty Head of the UN’s World Food Programme in Afghanistan

Over the past twenty years, conflict in Afghanistan has resulted in the displacement of thousands of people, compounded by extreme drought and food insecurity which has left millions in need of assistance. The recent withdrawal of all Western troops and diplomatic personnel from Afghanistan has deepened the crisis, with 18 million people now seeking humanitarian assistance, an increase of 30% since 2020. Of greatest concern is that 75% of those in need are women and children, and more than 3 million children are suffering from acute malnutrition. In addition to homelessness and food insecurity, the return of the Taliban has caused women and girls to fear the loss of their freedom and right to education.
