St. Pauls Ministry Centre is currently being redeveloped
Our Kincumber site is being developed to become a worship and community centre that will cater to the needs of the 21st century across the ages. In the meantime we are meeting at the Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre where our Se@K service is also held. Be part of these congregations as we transition into a new era for the Parish
Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre, 20 Kincumber Ave, Kincumber 2251
(Behind Coles Shopping Centre in Kincumber)
See a map showing how to get to the neighbourhood centre from our Church’s ministry centre below
To reach the Neighbourhood Centre turn north off Avoca Drive at the Shell Service Station into Bungoona Rd and then left into Kincumber St and left again into the first driveway that you come to. The Neighbourhood Centre is the first building on your right. There is plenty of parking and people with mobility issues should park on Kincumber St or close to the entry.
St. Paul’s 8am service is a traditional prayer book communion service, using the APBA (A Prayer Book for Australia). While the service might follow a formal liturgy, 8am also has a friendly and informal congregation, who are welcoming and enthusiastic. You will be able to enjoy the small, but dedicated choir, friendly parishioners, great singing, praying, reading and preaching, topped off with a cup of tea & a bikkie afterward.
St. Paul’s 10am is a lively and informal service that caters primarily to empty nesters, but also provides a Sunday School programme if required. Most Sundays are a “Morning Prayer” style service, with the congregation enjoying a communion service once a month.
At 10am people are passionate about fostering an authentic relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as well as looking to the practical implications for what this relationship means in our day to day lives.
If you’re keen to be a part of a lively church, where people are keen to be connected, not only on Sunday, but also at Bible Study and other activities during the week, then this would be a great congregation for you to connect with.
St Paul’s Ministry Centre was dedicated and opened as a Parish Hall in 1981, as a focal point for the parish. Due to increasing congregation sizes, St Paul’s Church was out grown, and in 1985, the St Paul’s congregation moved over to the parish hall site.
In 1998 the 9.30 am congregation and Sunday school from St Bede’s was merged with the 9.30 am Kincumber congregation, with an emphasis on family, children and youth ministries. In 2002 a family and youth ministry worker, and a children’s ministry worker were employed, and a new contemporary service was started, SE@K ( Sunday Evening at Kincumber ), at 5.00 pm to cater for young families, children, youth and adults, with sporting ties. The Service moved to the Kincumber Youth Centre on June 13, 2010 to take advantage of larger facilities for a growing children’s ministry and congregation.
In 2002 the rectory, became unsuitable as a residence, and was converted into offices, and meeting rooms, to support the growing ministry team and the growth of various ministries within Kincumber area.
In 2005 extensions were carried out to increase the floor space in the ministry centre, to accommodate growth in our 3 congregations.
In 2017 work began on redeveloping the site for future generations and to give our Se@K congregation a home.
