Cardiff Anglican Church – St Thomas

Welcome to the Parish of Cardiff. The Cardiff Anglican Church is St Thomas Cardiff.

We welcome all who come to worship, or to join in any of the many activities around our parish.

Cardiff Anglican Church family is a well bonded open community of faith. Our feet planted firmly on the ground. We support and care for each other, and for those with whom our lives come in contact. Our spiritual life is nurtured by the sacraments and by scripture, and our challenge is to make a difference. We strive to be an open an inclusive community. We welcome children and young people, adults and more senior people; single people, married people, and those somewhere in-between.

The heritage of the Anglican Church is The Church of England. We are, however, very Australian and contemporary. This is where we need to live out our faith, informed by our past and looking to our future.

For those seeking Baptism, Marriage, or the Funeral for a loved one, we are glad of the privilege to walk with you in these important life events. Arrangements for these can be made, simply contact us by phone or email.

In the midst of the business of life, we offer a moment to reclaim the peace that God wants for each of us. Time to remember that life is more than timetables, phone calls, and Facebook, and though all those things are important, they need to be in place and in balance.

You are more than welcome on our website, and you are more than welcome at our worship, to walk with us as far as you want on this journey we call life.

Cardiff Anglican Church is committed to the service of God, and the community in which we have been called to 'shine as a light in the word to the glory of God the Father'.
