What we Believe

Anglicanism is one of the expressions of Christian faith. We are people called to worship God in Christ and by the power of the Spirit to build communities of hope, healing and transformation.

What we Believe

Governance

Our Diocese is governed by the constitutions of the Anglican Church of Australia and the Anglican Province of Western Australia and we are guided by the tradition, principles and diversity of the global Anglican Communion.

Ministry

The Diocese of Perth is at the forefront of providing opportunities for lay, clergy, women, men, old, young to be fully involved at every level of leadership in the church, across Western Australia.

Vocations

Is God calling you to Anglican ministry? All Christians are ‘called’ by God, and in that sense have a ‘vocation’. The Church takes all calls seriously, because we recognise the God who calls.

Vocations

In the Community

The Anglican Church in Western Australia continues to be a strong and visible presence in the community, and has been for over 150 years.

History

The Church of England was described by historian John Tonkin as an ‘active partner in the process of colonisation’ in the Swan River colony. The first colonial chaplain was the Reverend John Burdett Wittenoom, who arrived in the colony in 1830.
