Maryborough with Avoca

We seek to be an inclusive parish welcoming everyone to worship, prayer, social events and fellowship and reaching out into the community especially to people in need. We have weekly Bible Exploring, morning tea and visiting to the hospitals and aged care facilities as well as food distribution and pastoral care. Our church communities have active, supportive fellowship groups or guilds, including Mothers' Union and Anglican Men's Society. We support Christian Religious Education and Chaplaincy in our primary and secondary schools in the region. Our faithful Lay Liturgical/Pastoral Assistants regularly take communion services both in church and to people in aged care or their homes. We are blessed with a serving team and choir to uplift our worship.
