Hello and welcome to the website of St. Paul's Anglican Church, Ballarat!
Our parish church of St. Paul's is situated on Bakery Hill (Ballarat East) with magnificent views of the city of Ballarat. It was founded in 1854 at the height of the gold rush in Ballarat and surrounding towns and since then it has served as an oasis of peace and tranquillity in Ballarat East for people of all nationalities and ages as they gather in its magnificent interior to celebrate God and what God has done for us in Jesus Christ.

Diocesan Prayer for 2017:

"Year of Living Stones and Living Hope"

Bountiful God,
You are always more willing to give generously that we ever desire or deserve. We thank you for the many blessings you give us especially the gift of faith and the hope of glory. As we embark on our journey may we each be like living stones, rejoicing in the hope you have shown us in the person of Jesus Christ. May we be filled with a desire for justice.

Service Times

Prayer for Mothers

Thank you God for the love of our mothers:

thank you God for their care and concern;
thank you God for the joys they have shared with us;
thank you God for the pains they have borne for us;
thank you God for all that they give us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Lent:

Lord Jesus,
When I would shut my eyes – because I am afraid to see,
when I would hold on tightly – because I am afraid to share,
when I would close my doors – because I am afraid to get involved,
may I find courage in the company of your people,
learning with them to open my eyes, my hands,
my home and my heart.
Amen.
