Parish of Lesmurdie
St Swithunʼs was an integral part of the Parish of Kalamunda from its consecration on the 16th January 1910 until the formation of the Parochial District of Lesmurdie with St Swithunʼs becoming a separate parish in July, 1990.
Our doors are open to everyone of any faith or none.
Traditionally Lesmurdie was a fruit growing area and depended on a substantial rainfall for the success of its orchards. St Swithunʼs Church was named after St Swithun former Bishop of Winchester who died in 862. He is said to be the patron saint of weather and it was felt appropriate that the church be dedicated to him. The church crest depicts rain descending onto apples.
