CCSY Vision, Mission & Values Statement

– as endorsed by the Parish’s Annual Meeting 2015 –



Christ Church South Yarra is a vibrant and inclusive Anglican church called to experience and express God’s love in worship, fellowship, and service.


Sharing God’s love for the world, we aim to be a community of hospitality, education, and outreach that:

  • invites everyone to experience God’s generosity

  • nurtures and matures Christian faith and ministry

  • brings the Gospel to our neighbourhood and beyond


Our life together is shaped by:

  • liturgy and music of the highest quality

  • scriptural teaching that challenges and encourages

  • our care for people and for the earth


Mission also involves supporting the wider Church in its work and ministry in the world. Christ Church supports various organisations, including:

ABM (nominated projects: Wontulp-Bi-Buya College, and Good Friday appeal for Jerusalem)

Act for Peace and Christmas Bowl

Anglicare Victoria

Brotherhood of St Laurence
