Welcome to St. Alban's Anglican Church, Five Dock.
We're a community of worshippers who are passionate about Jesus: what He's done, is doing and will do in our world.
We love to meet new people! So whether you’re young or old, whether you come by yourself or with others, whether you’ve been a Christian all your life or have never been inside a church before, there’s a place for you here.
WE HAVE 2 SERVICES EACH SUNDAY:
At every service we sing, we hear a talk from the bible, and we pray. We also love hearing people share their experience of God’s work in their lives.
Both services are followed by morning tea or supper which is a small part of the rich community life that we enjoy throughout the week.
Our 10am service includes people from all ages and walks of life. This service has a great children's program that runs alongside the service for kids between 0-14 years of age.
Our 6pm service is brand new! It launched on 5th April 2015 and combines contemporary music and creative elements with a strong commitment to being transformed by God’s word.
You can wear what you like, stay for as long as you like, and you’re free to simply sit back and see what we are on about.
A small tip: the front of our church (that is, the side facing the Great North Rd) is actually the back of our church! So be sure to come to the entrance facing East St.
THROUGH THE WEEK
Many of us meet in weekly fellowship groups where we enjoy each other's company and explore further what it means to follow Jesus in our day-to-day lives. This usually involves opening the bible, reading it and discussing it together. It also involves praying for each other. And most of the time it involves some sort of eating.
Every few months we also run a short course for people who want to explore what Christianity is all about. You might have unanswered questions about the Christian faith, or maybe just want to take a deeper look into what we're all about. If so, then this course could be great for you! Course dates are shown in the 'News & Events' page of this website.
Children are valued members of St Alban’s. Our Sunday kids church program aims to help kids to grow in faith and learn about Jesus each week.
Every Sunday kids attend church with their parents. The whole church joins together for singing and worship, including a kids’ song, before the kids head off into streamed programs:
Kids Church is for infants and primary school aged children. Children at kids church play games, sing songs and learn stories from the bible. Bible teaching and prayer time occurs in smaller groups where children can discuss and explore issues with other children who are similar in age.
Little Kids Church is for preschool aged children. Children at little kids church sing songs, listen to a bible story, enjoy free play and eat morning tea together.
If you have any questions about Kids Church at St Alban’s please contact Alison Moffitt (email@example.com)
How does having faith in Jesus help us deal with the pressures of life?
2 Corinthians is a letter written by the apostle Paul to the church which he founded in Corinth.
It’s a letter written out of his own anguish. He has suffered significant hardship and his relationship with the Corinthian Christians is under great strain.
And yet his letter marked by a steadfast love for the Corinthians - and by determined confidence that though he is weak, he can trust God to comfort and forgive and sustain him. And it is this grace of God which empowers Paul to persevere in the trials of daily life - in particular it is this grace which enables him to continue engaging positively with the Christians in Corinth despite the tensions between them.
