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 TWO 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 launched on Easter Day, 2015. It 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.
ARRIVING AT CHURCH
A small tip: the side of our building that faces Great North Rd is actually the back of our church! Walk around 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 children (and tweens!) from Kindergarten through to Year 8. Children at kids church learn from the bible and enjoy games, craft and music. Our kids church program runs in three age groups, so that kids can have fun and explore their questions about God, the bible and the world with other children their age.
Little Kids Church is for preschool children aged 1-5 years. Children at little kids church sing songs, listen to a bible story, enjoy free play and eat morning tea together.

There are plenty of other things happening for kids midweek and during the school holidays. Find out about our other regular activities here.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being.
What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
The darkness has not overcome him. During this season of Lent, we are preparing for Easter by exploring the dramatic story of Jesus' humiliating arrest, his unjust trial, and his violent execution, as recorded in the words of Jesus' disciple John. John's story is punctuated by confronting questions asked of Jesus and the people around him:
'Who are you looking for?'
'Are you one of Jesus' disciples?'
'Are you the King of the Jews?'
'Shall I crucify your king?'
Come and experience this remarkable story of Jesus' triumph over injustice, violence and evil.
