Churches

St. Mark’s North Albury

In 2010 St. Mark’s celebrated the 40th anniversary of its present building, a spacious, light and open centre of worship. It is beautifully decorated with the atrium behind the altar containing a large white cross, visible through the floor to ceiling glass window that forms the rear east wall of the church. The church and hall used to be situated across the road in what is now the Masonic Hall. The whole parish comes together on the second Sunday each month at St. Mark’s for a combined worship service, and other special services such as Confirmations are also held in St. Mark’s. St Mark's is located on the corner of Gulpha and Corella Streets, North Albury.
The Parish Office is located here. Office hours are: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9.00am to 12 noon. Phone: 02 6040 6457.

St. John’s Thurgoona

St. John’s is the oldest church building in the parish. In 2010 the 150th anniversary of Anglican worship at Thurgoona was celebrated, although the present church was not built until the late 19th Century. The first school in the district was also started at the original Anglican church. The church grounds are large and well shaded by trees, and the creek runs close to the rear boundary. It is a popular setting for weddings. A small demountable cabin provides a meeting room and toilet facilities. St John's is located at 288 Tabletop Road, Thurgoona.

St. James Lavington

St. James has served the Lavington community since 1907, although the present church building has been extended. The hall adjacent to the church serves as the parish hall and is also well utilised by various church and community groups. It hosts a monthly Old Time Dance that is very popular. The church grounds provide the setting for the annual parish fete and Melbourne Cup Lunch, popular events and important fundraisers for the parish. St. James was the site for the opening of Trinity Anglican College in 2002, before the College moved to its current campus at Thurgoona. St James is located at 468 Urana Road, Lavington.

St Paul’s Jindera

The first church to be built in Jindera was a slab building with a thatched roof. This was erected in 1868-70 and was called St. Thomas. The services held on the third Sunday each month and during the years of 1871 to 1890 were conducted by Canon A.D. Acocks. This building was later demolished and the present one erected, having been dedicated on 13th March 1891. Canon Kingsmill was the rector. A bottle of wine is said to have been placed in one corner of the foundations by Mr T. Cross.
On 6th October 1968, a Centenary Service was conducted, which commemorated the first service held in Jindera a hundred years prior. Following two years’ closure and eight months of hard work mostly by voluntary labour, St Paul’s was reopened and rededicated by The Right Reverend Robert Beal on Sunday 25th October 1992.

On Sunday 21st June 2009, Father Colin Wellard officiated at a special service to bless the recently erected Bell and Tower. The bell was kindly donated by St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Dover Heights in Sydney.  They were no longer able to use the bell, due to noise complaints from the community. A variety of fundraising events were organised by parishioners to raise money to go towards this project.  The next project is the transport of a cabin from Katandra

St Paul's is located at Urana Road, Jindera - on the left-hand side - just past the Museum.
