Two churches — one parish
Holy Innocents’ Church in Amberley and St Paul’s Church in Leithfield are both in the Anglican Parish of Amberley. The congregations are drawn from nearby beach settlements and rural areas as well as Amberley township and Leithfield village.
It’s our privilege to share in the lives of individuals and families, both in times of celebration and sorrow. We offer friendship and a supportive and caring community as well as the sacraments of the church to all who need them. We look forward to meeting visitors or newcomers to our community.
The parish vicar is Reverend Stephanie Clay, supported by ordained and lay leaders and readers, and volunteers who help at Mainly Music for children.
To speak to the vicar, Rev. Stephanie, phone (020) 4021-1553. She is also available at the parish office (at the hall on Church Street, Amberley) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9.00 am to 3.00 pm. It is advisable to phone first in case she is out visiting parishioners.

We hold worship services in two beautiful, historic buildings. For a schedule of the current month’s services, see ‘Church Services’ on the main menu above.
Services are held here most Sundays at 9.30am but please check the schedule on this website, or the church noticeboard or local media. On the third Sunday of each month, we combine with local Presbyterians, alternating between Holy Innocents’ and the Presbyterian church (St Andrews) on Pound Street.
The parish hall is next to Holy Innocents’ Church. It can be hired for part or whole days, including the fully-equipped kitchen (which can be hired separately for commercial food preparation.) To enquire, please email Patricia at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (03) 314-9338.
St Paul’s Church (at left) is on the corner of Brighton Street & Leithfield Road in Leithfield. Holy Communion is celebrated in this lovely old church on the fourth Sunday of each month, at 9.30am. See the current month’s schedule under the ‘Church services’ menu above.
