Who are we?
We are an inclusive and welcoming Anglican church, situated in the heart of our local community.
At St Nicholas', we strive to follow the example of Jesus in the way he lived, expressing and practicing the compassion and all-encompassing love God has for the world.
St Nicholas' parish encompasses Mordialloc, Aspendale, Aspendale Gardens and Edithvale.
We gather for worship on the traditional lands of the Boon Wurrong peoples who, from time immemorial, have cared for the land on which we meet. We pay our respects to Boon Wurrong elders, past and present, and to all First Nations people.
The Anglican Church of Australia within the Diocese of Melbourne, is committed to child safe practice. The care, the safety and the welfare of children are embedded in policies and practices which are intended to reflect a commitment to zero tolerance of child abuse. Please visit Children & Family Page for more information.
Our worship is joyful and reverent in the Anglican tradition. We meet every Sunday at 9:15am for Holy Communion. This service includes Sunday School for children every Sunday (except school holidays) and is followed by morning tea fellowship. Messy Church, an all-age, informal and fun way of doing Church that is particularly suited to families with children, is held on the fourth Sunday of the month (excepting December and January) from 4.00 - 6.00 pm.

Our community worked together to develop a Mission Action Plan (MAP) 2019-2021. It is our statement of the values and aspirations of our parish community as we look towards the future.
Our recently renovated church is a lovely space to use for quiet prayer and reflection. The old sanctuary has now become a Gallery for changing art exhibitions to further inspire and provoke thought.
CHILDREN & FAMILY
Sunday School for the children, is available every Sunday (except school holidays), also beginning at 9.15am. The children join the rest of the congregation in the service at the time of Holy Communion.
Messy Church is a way of being church for all ages, involving experiences and fun. It does not prioritise either the needs of children or adults, but intentionally welcomes and provides for all ages. It is particularly fitting for families who may not find other forms of church appealing.
A Huge thank you to Parkdale & Mentone East Community Bank Branches from us! We look forward to posting updates on our rear garden project, once this pandemic is under control - something very much to look forward to 😇.
ST COLUMBA CHAPEL AND GALLERY
At the end of 2011, we completed the renovation and extension of St Nicholas’, successfully combined the old with the new, creating a beautiful reordered worship space that faces east through the opened up arches.
We now have a lovely Gallery space, in what was the old sanctuary, a beautiful area of red brick and stained glass interspersed with white walls.
We advise that our Statutory Parish Annual General Meeting,
will be held, by ZOOM on Sunday 29th November 2020, at 11AM.
