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)

Sick of conflict? Find peace here.
Sick of judgement? Find grace here.
Sick of loneliness? Find family here.
Sick of sadness? Find joy here.
Sick of harshness? Find gentleness here.
Sick of vitriol? Find kindness here.

The people of St James' Old Cathedral meet in a heritage treasure: Melbourne's oldest building, and first Anglican Cathedral. 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 the good things we receive from God.
