“And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.” Acts 11:26

Our parish laid its foundation stone at this site in 1999 and was established to serve the Orthodox faithful and local community. Although a relatively young parish in Australia, our faith is directly connected with the original Church of Antioch.We are part of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand, and the Phillipines.

With services in the Arabic and English languages, we welcome all to discover the Ancient Church of Jesus Christ. Enquirers into Orthodoxy and Catechumens are welcome.
