Who we are
We are people of all ages, and from all walks of life.
Faith in Jesus is central to all that we do. It is by such faith that we can love and treasure one another, despite our differences.
Through faith, and our common worship and unity, we walk with one another through the ups and downs of life, nurturing, praying for and encouraging each other on the way.
We are not perfect!
Each week we come together to acknowledge that, and to seek God’s will and direction through worship that has been passed down over many generations.
It is through such worship that we come to know our most loving God, who in turn transforms our hearts that we might show others that love by faith, kindness, mercy, compassion, grace, understanding and hospitality.
Anglican Parish of Hunters Hill
Our two Churches, St Mark’s and All Saints’, are on the traditional lands of the Wallumatagal.
This Church was originally located on the corner of Joubert and Church Street, Hunters Hill. It was built in 1858 with the dual purpose of a school house and Chapel. As such it is the oldest public building in Hunters Hill.
In 1962 it was moved, stone by stone, to where it currently stands nestled in the tree lined street of Figtree Road.
The addition of stained glass windows at this time has enhanced the traditional ambiance of this glorious church, often described as a beautiful “country church in the city”.
We enjoy worship in this sacred space every week. The War Memorial Hall at the rear of the Church is used by children’s groups, exercise classes, dance groups and for community meetings.
Driving through the parkland gardens is a fitting arrival to one of the most beautiful sandstone churches of Sydney. Built in 1888 by the Colonial Architect Horbory Hunt, this stunning, gothic building displays remarkable stained glass, a long wide, red-carpeted isle and a spectacular timber roof.
Our historic Bevington Pipe organ sits to the left of the timber altar, surrounded by beautiful decorative tiles.
All Saints is the perfect setting for worship and celebration, which occurs in this sacred space every week.
