When we meet, we begin with joyful worship using a service especially designed for people with intellectual disabilities. The service is written in straightforward, concrete language and includes bright songs. The service usually lasts about 45 minutes. We then share a meal served by St Nicholas’ parishioners and enjoy conversation for about 45 minutes. These are very warm and friendly gatherings which offer support and a sense of community to everyone. We also have a group outing during the year.

St Nicholas’ large, modern, well equipped church hall is easily accessible to people with physical disabilities, has a dedicated toilet for people with disabilities, and plenty of parking. These features make the hall a wonderful venue for Crosslinks.

Contact The Reverend Stephen Gibbs, Crosslinks Chaplain on 9387 1304 or 0450 373 362 or The Reverend Les Marshall, Crosslinks Deacon on 0434 934 543. The Reverend Les Marshall is our deacon ministering to the Crosslinks community.

The Crosslinks group was founded in 1981, the International Year of the Disabled, in response to a request made to Archbishop Peter Carnley by concerned Anglican parents of  people living with an intellectual disability.  The group currently consists of people with intellectual disabilities, families, friends, carers, members of the Anglican Parish of Floreat Park and other supportive people including members of the Friends of L’Arche, Perth.

The group was named Crosslinks to indicate our twin role of providing a place of meeting for worship and fellowship under the Cross of Christ and to be a crossover for people with an intellectual disability into the life of the diocese.

Many people and families have been part of our life over the 37 years that the Crosslinks community has existed and many have found their place within the life of the diocese and many have found Crosslinks to be the spiritual home they have longed to know. We continue to welcome people from various denominations to Crosslinks.
