Swansea Anglican Church

Thanks for visiting Swansea Anglican Church website today. We are part of the Diocese of Newcastle, and serve the communities of Swansea, Gwandalan and Summerland Point, as well as Pelican, Blacksmiths, Caves Beach, Catherine Hill Bay, Nords Wharf, Cams Wharf, Chain Valley Bay and Murrays Beach.

Sunday by Sunday we gather as a Church Family of Anglicans to worship God, Father, Son & Holy Spirit, knowing this makes a difference in our lives, and praying that that difference will make a difference in our community. We welcome all who would come to join with us in worship. As well as Sunday worship, we offer the Pastoral Services of Baptism, Marriage, and Funerals. We have regular groups including Bible Study, Craft Group, Mothers' Union and a Guild.

You will find with us friendship, acceptance and caring.

Our mission: In faith and prayer, let us show God's love to all through our worship, witness and care.
