A message from our Rector
Welcome to the website of Christ Church St Laurence. The present building was consecrated in 1845, which was the first episcopal consecration of a church building in Sydney. Today, CCSL is a diverse and inclusive inner-city parish, committed to the spread of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We welcome people from all walks of life, and together we offer our praise to God. As a congregation and as the Church we are committed to the support of the underprivileged, the persecuted and the socially marginalised.
Our worship reflects the liturgical tradition of Anglicanism. CCSL maintains a great reverence for the sacraments of the church and boasts a world-wide reputation for fine liturgy and excellence in music. I encourage you to explore our website and to visit us soon.
Fr Daniel Dries
Eleventh Rector of Christ Church St Laurence
