We acknowledge the Wathaurong people as the traditional custodians of this land, and pay respect to Elders, past and present.

The parish is part of the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, and the Archdeaconry of Geelong.

Our Vicar, since 2010, is Revd Robert Myers.

The parish mission statement 
‘called to know and worship Christ, love and care for one another, and serve the community in God’s name’ helps provide direction for worship, mission and service. This website was created to provide news and information about parish life. 


Work began on the repair of the slate roofing at the heritage listed St James' Church, Drysdale on Monday 11th September, and has recently been completed.  St James is one of the oldest surviving buildings in Drysdale, opened in 1872.

A Roof appeal fund (See separate page) is now up and running to help fund the estimated $40,000 cost for this repair, and already we have received some generous donations, for which we are very grateful.

The Annual Parish Meeting (APM) will be held at St Paul's, St Leonards on Sunday 26th November, following a Parish Combined Service at  9 am
