Neighbours meeting Neighbours:
Making connections possible

St James' Old Cathedral runs a range of activities to enjoy each other's company, grow in our faith and serve the wider community.


The paradox of urban areas like ours is that people live very close together yet don't know how to meet each other. We want to help our local community connect not merely with us but with each other. We aim to make neighbour connections possible, and loneliness unnecessary, in West Melbourne.

We have already begun seeding pilot programs in Roden Street and Jeffcott St, and welcome expressions of interest in starting gatherings in other local areas.
