PARISH MISSION To be a welcoming Christian family, filled by the Holy Spirit and caring for the community"
We welcome you to the Anglican Parish of Hendra/Clayfield within the Diocese of Brisbane.
Our Parish boundary has within it, both the Domestic and International terminals of the Brisbane Airport, as well as both Eagle Farm and Doomben race courses.
Whilst our two Churches offer different styles in architecture, both give a gentle ambience that leads so naturally to prayer and peace.
For a long time, there were two separate parishes, but as from 01 January 2002, we came together to form the new Parish of Hendra/Clayfield.
On the following pages, we hope you will find information that helps you to know what we offer. We would be delighted to welcome you to any of our Services, and hope that you will be enriched and blessed by them.
Baptisms, Weddings, Confessions and Funerals. Call the Rector to discuss your special Service. Phone: (07) 3268 3092 Mobile 0407 382 647. firstname.lastname@example.org
