Welcome to St James’ Old Cathedral

St James’ Old Cathedral is one of Melbourne's best secrets. Over the past few years the city's oldest church, long neglected and often unnoticed, has quietly blossomed into something special. Now we are a warm, happy, all-age community that enjoys traditional Anglican worship, faithful bible teaching, and sublime choral music. We are people from every walk of life brought together by a common goal: to love, enjoy and worship the Triune God we meet through Jesus Christ our Lord.

St James' surprises people. Many who had previously drifted away from church have found the Old Cathedral an ideal place to re-engage with God; and many visitors to our city have made us their home away from home. Do join us!
