Thanks for visiting our website today. We are the active and friendly Anglican Church Woy Woy. We have two churches, St Lukes Woy Woy and St Andrews Umina.
We seek to serve Christ and the people of the Woy Woy Peninsula.
If you would like to join with us (or just check us out) you will be more than welcome at our services or other activities in the life of the Parish.
We seek to be true to our Anglican heritage, in a very contemporary way, that makes sense in 21st century Australia.
We offer a variety of worship formats. If you look at the worship page, you may well have a feeling about what is right for you.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
