St David's Anglican Church Chelmer Graceville

Finding ways of moving closer to God and each other that lead to abundant life!

This phrase seems to name the most pressing task for us as a faith community at this time. This website provides one way in which we seek to use all that we have for this purpose. At its heart is our desire to be a community committed to vital and life giving relationships with all that are shaped by knowing God in Jesus Christ.

St David's Chelmer is glad to share in this partnership with the people of Crows Nest Anglican Parish.

We are well placed - 2 August 2020

We have spent the last two weeks transitioning to a hybrid model of worship at St David’s. Much preparation has taken place that has enabled us to comply with the Queensland Health directives as well as moving to live-streaming our worship each week. We are on a steep learning curve, and there have been a few bumps on the way. We continue preparations for the sale of two lots of land next to the hall and the planned maintenance and refurbishment inside the church.

Church Development

If you pass the memorial hall, you will see a new “For Sale” sign in front of Lots 48 and 50 Chelmer Street East. You can see the online advertisement at this link.

There is still some work to be completed before any sale can be finalised. We are expecting construction work to begin in mid-August and last about six weeks. This work should not impact on the use of the church hall although there may be increased noise at times. As part of this work an Arborist has been engaged to ensure the well being of the Hoop Pine during construction.

With the excellent progress, we are now making we hope that we will be in a place to proceed with the vital work to care and develop our church building in the latter part of this year.

Live-streaming

As part of our return to gathered worship, we have begun live-streaming our Sunday and Wednesday services. It has not always been smooth as we learn to use this technology. I am particularly grateful to the families from our community who are committing to learn and run the equipment during our services. You can access the Live-stream from several different places that include –
