Like yeast.

“The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened.” (Matthew 13:33)

St James' Old Cathedral usually meet in a heritage treasure: Melbourne's oldest building. 
But the heart of what we are is a group of people loving God and loving each other. In doing so, we hope to be like yeast, leavening our wider community with God's peace, love and joy.

After cancelling all public ministry events on site from Monday 16th March, we set up a virtual house of prayer at Zoom Room 597-917-6529. Think of this space like a virtual church building that is always open. Drop in to pray by yourself. Like our actual building, sometimes, when you drop in, you might find a minister there to meet you, or another parishioner praying. Sometimes a whole congregation will be praying.

 

And you will be welcome, and treated with love and respect, and invited to observe or participate in our prayers. To join us, go to zoom.us, click "Join a Meeting", and enter meeting code: 597-917-6529. Or for a smoother experience, download the app first.

For those with young children, we are also offering both Children's Chapel on Sunday and mainly music on Tuesday mornings by zoom. We are doing other things behind the scenes, please email Rev. Jess Naylor-Tatterson for more details.

With no commute time, we have found ourselves able pray together more often than ever - three times a day - pleading with God to show mercy to our nation and world, and that early. By hosting regular short prayer times we hope to help people develop a habit of prayer, and structure it into the rhythm of their lives. All are welcome to join us whenever you can!

Please see our online meeting times on the contact bar on this page.
