Bellarine Gateway Anglican Parish

Our parish is one of the larger parishes in the Geelong area and is situated on the boundary between Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula. This parish has three centres,  St Barnabas' in Newcomb, St Mark's in Leopold and St Paul's in Whittington,  where people gather for Sunday services and a range of other activities.

Our services reflect the diverse nature of the parish. We use A Prayer Book For Australia at all our services. Our music is also a mixture of traditional and more modern. If you would like to find out more about our church services choose one of the links from the column on the left.

People from the parish work closely with the community in a wide range of areas, providing a variety of activities and services to help meet community needs.  The links on the right give more detail about this part of our purpose.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to enable individuals to recognise and carry out their ministries as Christians.

Through this, we strive to become a model company of faithful people who both honour their varied traditions and actively share in building the family of Christ.

Parish Prayer

Lord you are in the midst of us and we are called by your name. Guide us in our worship and life together: transform us into whatever you would have us be. Help us to be deeply connected with the world around us and strengthen us to proclaim the good news in word and deed in this community, for the glory and for the growth of your kingdom.

In Jesus name we pray.
