We are a church within the denomination of the Presbyterian Church of Australia and form part of the Presbyterian Church in NSW.
St Andrew’s is a Pastoral Charge which consists of St Andrew’s and two other congregations known as Weston Creek and Belconnen. St Andrew’s Church is prominently located within the parliamentary triangle of Canberra. The church sits on State Circle which surrounds Parliament House on Capital Hill. St Andrew’s was built in the early 1930’s and opened in September 1934.
The building is characterised by its gothic architecture which makes it one of the most beautiful churches in Canberra. The church is easily seen from every vantage point with its tall spire sitting alongside the tower of Parliament House which is a fitting symbol of the relationship between Church and State.
The church’s vision statement is: ‘The church at the heart of the nation with the nation at its heart’
In addition to its regular services St Andrew’s frequently hosts Parliamentary Services and other significant services in the life of the Canberra community.
Our worship is diverse encompassing both traditional and contemporary styles depending on the type of service.
Recently we planted an Indonesian congregation which meets monthly.
