About us

St Paul’s Manly is part of the Anglican Communion; one of the world’s largest Christian faith communities.

Christians are people who have responded to the good news brought by Jesus Christ, believing that in Jesus, God has come among us, sharing our joy and pain, and bringing the offer of new life and wholeness to us and our world.

Anglicanism is one of the traditions, or expressions, of this Christian faith.

Worship of God is central to Anglicans.

There is variety in Anglican worship: contemporary and informal, or traditional and formal. A special place is given to the Eucharist, in which we share the sacrament (the visible sign with spiritual meaning) of the body and blood of Christ.

There is no Anglican central authority such as a pope. Each Church makes its own decisions in its own ways, guided by recommendations from the Lambeth Conference, Anglican Consultative Council, the Primates’ Meeting and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Reading and meditating on the Bible plays a major part in Anglican life and belief.

The Bible is a collection of books which Christians accept as God’s word, interpreted by inspired writers at different stages of history.
