"God is love,
and those who abide in love
abide in God,
and God abides in them."
1 John 4.16
Moruya Anglican Parish is situated in the beautiful Eurobodalla Shire on the south coast of NSW. We are a parish with a progressive orientation and a warm and inclusive heart.
We have a concern for social and ecological justice arising from a Christ-centered love of neighbour. We aim to live out the words of Micah to 'love kindness, do justice and walk humbly with God'. Our Sunday services of Holy Communion are traditional in nature yet constitute just a part of our activities.
We are so much more than just a Sunday church!
Go to the "About" page to see the range of activities we offer. See also our "Services" page and "Events" page for other news including a link to our pew sheets.
Our parish office is open Mon – Thurs 10am-12am.

We extend a warm welcome....
To those who are single, married, divorced, remarried, widowed, gay, confused, filthy rich, comfortable or down to their last cent. We extend a special welcome to crying newborns, those feeling their age, and everyone in between. To the super fit and to those who could afford to lose a few kilos. You’re welcome here if you are a local, here for awhile, or just visiting.
We welcome you
If you can sing like Pavarotti or can’t carry a note in the shower. You are welcome here if you are just looking, just woke up or just got out of prison. We don’t mind if you’re more Catholic than the Pope, more Anglican than the Archbishop of Canterbury or haven’t been to church since little Diesel’s Baptism and don’t know what to do. Welcome if you are Islamic, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu or belong to any of our other fellow Christian religions.
We extend a special welcome
To those over 60 but not grown up yet and to teenagers growing up too fast. We welcome keep fit mums, football dads, farmers, starving artists, tree huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians, junk food eaters. We welcome those in recovery and those who are still addicted. We welcome you if you were having a hard time or you’re down in the dumps, or if you don’t like organised religion. You’re in good company here!
We offer a welcome to those who think the Earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, can’t hear, can’t walk, or who have come because grandma is visiting and wants to go to church.
Those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down the throat as a kid or got on the wrong bus and thought they were going to the football. We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, those with more questions than answers.
We welcome you whoever you are, however you are, just as you are, with no hoops to jump through.(#)
# The welcome words above appeared in the parish bulletin of the Carmelite church, Middle Park. It was adapted for use at the Benedictine Abbey at Jamberoo, NSW, where we found it and are now using it also.... thank you to those communities and their welcome.
