Our Mission & Vision

St Mary’s is a community. Loving God, Following Jesus, Sharing God’s love with all

  St Mary’s Anglican Church is a beautifully maintained  150 year old bluestone church nestled in the heart of Sunbury.  Its walls, slate roof and stained glass windows contribute to the picturesque image of an old country town church. It is a popular venue for weddings and baptisms and has a long history of serving the community of Sunbury.  However, don’t let it’s looks deceive you….  St Mary’s is also a modern church with a constantly growing membership of more than 200 regulars.  Behind its romantic walls are people who care about people and who serve and love each other and the community of Sunbury.

We acknowledge the triune God, the Creator of heaven and earth and His ownership of all things.  We recognise that He gave stewardship of these lands upon which we meet to the First Nations Peoples of this country. In His sovereignty, He has allowed other people groups to migrate to these shores.   We acknowledge the cultures of our First Nations Peoples and are thankful for the community that we share together now. We pay our respects to the Gunung-Willam-Balluk people of the Kulin nation and their elders/leaders, both past and present, and those who are rising up to become leaders.

  God’s Gang

God’s Gang is our Sunday School program, for children from 4 year old Kinder to Grade 6.  Families join us for the start of our 10.30am service and after some songs, a prayer and sometimes a short kids’ talk, the kids head off with their God’s Gang teachers and helpers to our Parish House for their session. A typical God’s gang session will include some singing, games, crafts and of course bible lessons and stories!  Kids are collected by their parents from the Parish house when the service is finished. All of our God’s Gang teachers and Creche leaders have current Working with Children Checks, National Police Checks and are carefully screened.

How Do I get Involved?

  St Mary’s Anglican Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mum, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at St Marys.

Home Groups

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, St Mary’s has small bible studies held in member homes. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twenty people. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study.


Children are welcome at all of our St Mary’s services, and we have a family area in our church where small children can play quietly, Mum’s can feed babies and families can be part of our worshipping community.  Children aged from 3 upwards can go out to God’s Gang during the 10.30am services.  Music Playtime meets every Thursday during school terms from 10.00- 11.30am in the the Parish Centre.


Each Sunday morning during school terms, children get to participate in their own “God’s Gang” activities. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of our God’s gang teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction and holds a current Working with Children card and Police Check. Kids United meets every Friday afternoon for Primary School aged children, from 3.45pm- 5.00pm in the Parish Centre.


Youth United is a youth group for Secondary school students, and meets every Friday night  in the Parish House.

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of St Mary’s provides a welcoming atmosphere for university and early-career aged young people.


Stitch n Sew

This group meets weekly in the parish centre on Tuesday afternoons for a great time of sewing and chatting and encouragement. They have produced some marvellous pieces of work and welcome new members.  

Mothers Union

M.U. meets on the third Wednesday morning of each month. They have guest speakers, raise funds and support and encourage each other.



Mission Outreach


St Mary’s is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in supporting missionaries with our money and with our prayers.  Every second year, a small team from our church travels to Chibobo, Zambia to assist  in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.
