Welcome to St Uriel’s

The Parish of St Uriel the Archangel is based in Sydney, Australia and is the cathedral parish of the Diocese of New South Wales. The parish is part of the Apostolic Johannite Church and is served by Bishop Tim Mansfield as rector.

We are a gnostic, contemplative, inclusive, Christian community. We encourage freedom of thought, diversity of belief and we share a strong commitment to spiritual practice. Our community is small, intimate and welcoming. If you’re interested in pursuing your personal spiritual journey in community with others, perhaps you’re one of us.  You might enjoy reading more about Johannite spirituality here.

Our parish extends a special welcome to Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex people. Read more here.

We encourage you to consider visiting, joining or volunteering. Mostly though, we’d like to meet you, just as you are.
