St Laurence Church

A welcome to St. Laurence’s is a welcome to a large and diverse Christian family.

St. Laurence’s is a church rooted in the local community with good resources to serve the needs of our diverse neighbourhood. We have a valued music tradition and a catholic spirituality that is a challenge to Christian growth.

Over the last one hundred and thirty years since our parish was founded, many changes have taken place in our church community. In our church life today you will find a wide section of the community united in worship and service. Our diversity enriches our parish family and broadens our understanding of God and of the mission of the church today.

On Sundays

The eucharist is celebrated at 8am and 10am. The 8am is a short communion service, quiet and reflective. At 10am, we have a full sung family mass with choir.

On weekdays

Wednesdays: 10.30am eucharist in the main church, generally preceded most weeks by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 10am.
Thursdays: eucharist at 9.45am in the Lady Chapel.
