A welcoming, friendly and supportive community awaits you at the St George’s Church, Op Shop and Family Centre. St George’s is full of special people and that makes it a special place. Every member of the congregation has an amazing story to share about their own life-journey to Christian faith. One thing we hear often is how friendly everyone is and all who come here are made to feel welcome and special be it on a Sunday morning, when the congregation gathers together for worship, or any other day and time when people visit the Church, Office, Op Shop and Family Centre. At St George’s we recognise that it is important to share the love of Jesus with everyone we meet for we are all God’s children, called to grow in our friendship with Jesus. So, we believe that every person in our parish community is so valuable and worthy of God’s unconditional love and care.
Welcome to our website – we request you to kindly visit the drop-down menus to read about some of our activities and events. Our weekly pew sheet is also provided for easier interface with your friends here at St Georges.
A Typical Week at St George's
At St George’s everyone of us, the People – the ordinary people of God who are committed to following Christ by virtue of our Baptism – meet together on a regular basis to pray, serve and worship the Lord.

Our church is open every day and Family Centre bookings can be made through the Bookings Manager. Here is a list of our Office & Op Shop opening times:

At St George’s we recognise that the church are the people who make up the congregation and local community.
At St George’s we recognise that the church are the people who make up the congregation and local community. Therefore, we value our role and place as a part of God’s Kingdom in Dunsborough. Furthermore, this raises awareness of the need to develop and maintain a strong relationship with God. You may recall that Jesus emphasised that the first and greatest commandment is to ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ (Luke 10v27). So, trusting and relying on God enables to focus on the church building as the place where Jesus can be encountered in a special way particularly in the sacramental sharing of bread and wine during Holy Communion. Once that relationship and friendship with Jesus is established and maintained well – every Sunday, every day – we can look around.
Our Congregation and Ministry Teams
Luke 10v27 goes further – ‘… and, love your neighbour as yourself’. Therefore, Jesus teaches us about the importance of reaching out – about giving of ourselves at the same time as we allow others to minister to our own needs. At St Georges, before you know it, you’ll be surrounded by a community of like-minded people. They’re called ‘The Congregation’ and these are the people who, through dedicated service and prayer, drive the works of faith that happen here and thus characterise who we are as children of God in the Anglican Parish of Dunsborough, making Op Shop and Family Centre ministries possible and available for all. So – Listen, Practice, Grow and join us!
