Remembrance Sunday Concert

Lachlan McDonald (baritone) and Timothy Mallis (piano) present a recital in memory of the fallen. Weaving English and Australian poetry, this concert is a chance to reflect on the wars of the past and present. In particular, it will feature the song cycles of Gerald Finzi (Air, and Earth, and Rain) and Timothy Mallis (The Burning Marl).

• When: Sunday 13 November, 2pm

• Where: St Andrew’s Anglican Church, Brighton (corner of Church and New Streets)

• Tickets: $30, plus ticket fee - book here

• Doors open 1.45pm



The Requiem Mass for The Reverend Dr Brian Porter will be held at St Andrew's on Saturday 5 November. Brian was a well-known and much loved Anglican priest who served in various capacities in this Diocese and others, particularly remembered as School Chaplain at Melbourne Grammar and lastly Brighton Grammar. I expect a large crown of Anglicans to be in attendance. Our sympathies are extended to Muriel Porter and her family at this time.

The funeral for David Hynes, a Brighton resident will be held at St Andrew's on Wednesday at 2pm. This is also expected to be a very large funeral.


Parish Annual Meeting

A reminder that documents relating to our upcoming Annual Meeting on 20 November (following the 10am service) can be accessed here, including the nomination form for office bearers which can be downloaded directly here


Ordination to the Holy Order of Priest

The Reverend Xeverie De-Leon, presently our Deacon, will be ordained as a priest at St Paul's Cathedral on Saturday 26 November at 10.30am. You are welcome to join the congregation on that day.

On Sunday 27 November - St Andrew's day and Advent 1, Xev will celebrate her first Eucharist as priest at the 10am service. Bishop David Farrer will be the preacher. There will be incense during the service and refreshments afterwards in the courtyard and Pioneer Chapel to celebrate her priesting and St Andrew's Day.
