Committed to Spiritual Growth

St.James’ Anglican Church is one of the leading congregations in the Dandenong area. We are a multicultural congregation dedicated to serving the spiritual and cultural needs of our parish community. Worship at St James' is traditional Anglican worship based on the current prayer book. 

Ministers wear robes, there are candles on the table, and we celebrate the Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion. Contact us, or visit us to learn more about our worship and Christian community.

Jeremy feels privileged to have begun his ordained ministry at St James in Dandenong. He was ordained deacon in February 2017, priested in November 2017, and had the role of Locum at St James for 9 months during 2019. Jeremy completed theological studies at Ridley College, a student placement at St John's Diamond Creek, and was involved in various ministries in the Salvation Army and with AFES in both Melbourne and Adelaide.

Jeremy loves helping people discover how Jesus' death and resurrection transforms our whole lives as we grow in him through the Scriptures. Jeremy wants to be life-long learner as he continues the great journey that is the Christian life (let alone, ministry leadership). Jeremy is married to Sarah, whom he met at his previous parish of St John's Diamond Creek.
