Fiacre's Feast:   Body ~ Mind ~ Soul

Telarah Rutherford Anglican Church

Telarah Rutherford Welcomes You.

We welcome you to the Anglican Parish of Telarah Rutherford. Our two churches are St Luke's, Telarah. and St Christopher's, Rutherford.

The parish is just five minutes up the road from Maitland. We pride ourselves on being friendly and inclusive.

We are a liberal catholic Anglican parish. We enjoy the elements of high Anglican liturgy (i.e. "smells and bells"), while open to some more informal expressions of prayer and worship.

Each month "Messy Mass" at St Christopher's (held at 10.00 am on the first Sunday of the month) is an exuberant interactive experience for both kids and the kid at heart.

Social Justice.

True to our Anglo-Catholic roots, Telarah Rutherford has a great love and concern for those in need. Our Emergency Food Relief program helps many families in crisis each week. We are seeking to expand our capacity to feed the hungry. (See Matthew 25:35). The plan is to start a free community garden called “Fiacre's Feast”.

Care & Community.

The Anglican Parish of Telarah Rutherford plays an active role in our local community. We aim to spread the light of Christ through acts of kindness and compassion, hospitality and generosity. We hope to create beauty through the care of our environment. Explore our web site to find out more about us. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
