A 3D Church - Disciples of Jesus, Discipling Devonport.
WELCOME - STOP PRESS!! It is with much sadness, some trepidation, and a degree of excitement that I announced to the Parish today that my time of ministry here in Devonport is coming to a conclusion. You can read more detail here, but I feel the time has come for Devonport Anglican Church to benefit from new and different ministry skills than those I have been able to offer over the last six and a half years. Towards the end of the year, the family and I will be moving to Launceston, where I have accepted the position of Associate Minister at Holy Trinity, working alongside Devonport's current Parish Consultant, Dane Courtney. There are still things to be sorted out, but we pray the Lord continues to lead and bless all of us in this new phase. John
Note: BIG NEWS - Covid-19 Drastically affects operations. See our "Services" and "News" pages for further details. Also, the Diocesan Web Page gives the Bishop's Pastoral Letter and recent updates, as well as how to link in with some live-streamed Sunday Services from around the Diocese.
BUT.... WE ARE BACK!! 'Open' Services re-commenced July 5th, with a reduced congregation. We need to know BEFOREHAND who is coming each week, as places are limited. Get in touch if you'd like to be included.... and we hope you will. We will continue with the Streamed and Phone-in option for the forseeable future. From 20.7.20, the Office will be re-opening, with regular hours (9:00-12:00 weekdays), but with reduced staffing.
We began offering a 'Streamed' Service each Sunday, starting on 29.3.20. These streamed Services can be viewed live, or reviewed later, via our Facebook Page. Our first streamed Service went surprisingly well - praise God! - and can still be viewed here. We also managed to have people phone in to hear the Service - though this was a little bit 'patchy' in sound quality to begin with, but works better now. We streamed our first Service from St. John's, then for a number of weeks, they came from the Rectory. We will continue to Stream and 'Zoom' (for those on the phone) from St. John's, even as we begin to welcome a 'live' Congregation.
Welcome to the site for Devonport Anglican Church. We are the Anglican Parish for the City of Devonport in Northern Tasmania. We fit within the Anglican Diocese of Tasmania, and work to fulfill our part of the wider Diocesan Vision.
Within that, we have our own specific Parish Vision – to be a “3D Church – Disciples of Jesus, Discipling Devonport”. The specifics of our Parish Vision and Strategies we employ in attempting to fulfill that Vision can be downloaded as a PDF booklet. We are a ‘mainstream’ Anglican Church, theologically evangelical, biblically orthodox, and seeking to reach our wider community. Our “Age Profile” is more senior, but we are working hard to connect with people from all segments of society. We would love you to feel welcome to come and join us. Updates and regular events can also be found on our Facebook Page. If you have "Big Questions" about life, feel free to check out the next page, as well as exploring the rest of our Website.
