Welcome to St. Paul's Anglican Church, Bakery Hill



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.

Advent Prayer
Henri J.M. Nouwen


Lord Jesus,
Master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.
We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.
We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.
To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!"
Amen.
