About Us

ABOUT US

Our Church is a member of The Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC), a worldwide association of Continuing Anglican Churches working to promote the Catholic Faith as the Anglican Church has received it, and to resist the secularisation of the Church.

 

TAC Churches are to be found in Africa, Australia, the Torres Strait, Canada, Latin America, England, Ireland, India and the United States of America.

 

We are not in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury and have no affiliation with the Anglican Church of Australia.

 

We acknowledge that the Scriptures contain all things necessary for salvation.  We believe the historic teaching of the Church contained in the Nicene Creed and the Seven Councils of the Early Church and that the apostolic ministry of bishops, priests and deacons as that ministry has been known since the earliest times, must be preserved.  

 

Those enquirers and visitors who join us for worship will receive a warm welcome, hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and worship in a traditional manner.

 

In Western Australia, all our parishes are currently in the metropolitan area of Perth but, under God’s guidance, we would like to provide whatever ministry we can to Traditional Anglicans wherever they may be.

 

How can you learn more?  Come and worship with us!  Our Parish Priests are always glad to answer your questions and, if requested, to provide a course of instruction on the Christian Faith and the Traditional Anglican Communion.

The Shield of our Church in Western Australia

  • The shield represents the Shield of Faith (Ephesians 6:16).

  • The cross of St Andrew in the top left corner and the keys of St Peter in the top right corner acknowledge the parishes of St Andrew and St Peter as founding parishes.
     

  • The crest of a bishop’s mitre indicates that we are an Episcopal Church.  The bishops are the successors to the Apostles and their main function is to guard, preserve and proclaim the “Faith once delivered to the Saints”.  
     

  • The Cross on the shield recognises firstly, that Christ died on a cross for our Salvation.  Secondly, it is the cross of St George and indicates that our Church has its heritage and tradition from the Church of England.

  • The black swan in the bottom right corner represents Western Australia, our founding location.
     

  • The bottom left corner is blank.  This symbolises the vastness of God’s love for His Church and her faithful people.
     

  • The motto, “God is our Strength”, is based on Isaiah 41:10 where God says, "fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
     

 

We believe this shield encompasses our endeavours to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
