Following the retirement of Fr John at the end of January 2021 the Parish is looking for a new Parish Priest.

Please pray for a faithful, prayerful priest for the Anglican Parish of Essendon; and for the members of the Incumbency Committee as they search for the Priest God has in mind for this parish.


Bountiful God, give to this parish a faithful pastor who will faithfully speak your word and minister your sacraments; an encourager who will equip your people for ministry and enable us to fulfil our calling. Give to those who will choose, wisdom, discernment, and patience, and to us give warm and generous hearts, for Jesus Christ’s sake. AMEN.

Bishop Paul White is minding the Parish as locum until the Archbishop appoints a new priest.  Bishop Paul can be contacted on (03) 9379 2770  or
