“One of Melbourne's oldest churches”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

This city Anglican parish church dates from around1846 and services/masses are in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. It is classified by both Heritage Victoria and the National Trust as being of the highest level of historical significance partly because there are not many buildings remaining in Melbourne from before the 1850s. Inside are fine artworks: 19th and 20th century stained glass, paintings, woodcarvings, bronzes.the iconostasis plus the mosaics surrounding the High Altar.
The church is well known for it's music; there is a gift and book shop off the Gisborne Street entrance that is open during the week and a 'Lazarus Centre' that assists people in need with food parcels and advice
There are other interesting buildings on the site also and on the opposite side of Gisborne Street is Melbourne's Catholic Cathedral, the German Lutheran Church, and charming old terrace houses, one of which is the headquarters of the National Trust.
