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 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.
