The Anglican Parish of Kilmore is located in the heart of the State of Victoria, Australia. It comprises of four centres, Christ Church Kilmore, St Matthew’s Broadford, The Church of the Transfiguration Pyalong and St Stephen’s Tallarook.
It is the most southerly parish in the Diocese of Wangaratta, which covers the north-east of Victoria and the Albury district in New South Wales.
The Parish church is located in the historic township of Kilmore, Victoria’s oldest inland town.
We celebrate and preach the incarnation. Jesus Christ is Emmanuel ‘God with us.’ It is this faith in Christ, God made man, crucified and risen, and alive today, that lies at the heart of our Parish life. We strive to live this faith in the power of the Spirit.
A living faith, an historic faith, yes, but one which is informed by a twenty first century world view. The parish is firmly grounded in the Anglican catholic tradition. It is animated, nourished and sustained by the sacraments, the scriptures and the living traditions of the church, by prayer and the liturgy.
It is our aim to be a welcoming and hospitable community of faith, to all comers, and to reach out into our wider communities, proclaiming Christ’s gospel, of reconciliation, compassion and love.
