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.

AshWednesdayThere is no other way to life and to true inner peace, than the way of the Cross and of daily self-denial. Go where you will, seek what you will; you will find no higher way above or safer way below than the road of the Holy Cross. Arrange and order all things to your own ideas and wishes, yet you will still find suffering to endure, whether you will or not; so you will always find the Cross
