Kalbarri Anglican Church is a community of ordinary people that follow the extraordinary Jesus. Our Christian community has people from different stages in life, cultural backgrounds and with different interests and passions. However, we are united together by the profound truth that God is real; that he loves us and that you can know that love in Jesus.
We meet regularly on a Sunday and at various times throughout the week. You are most welcome to visit us at one of the worship services (currently we meet at 9am Sunday mornings - see our Service Times page for more information) that happen every week. We look forward to seeing you!
The Rev. David Day (wife: Jenny and son: Nathanael) ministers to the Anglican community of Kalbarri.
Kalbarri is located 589kms north of Perth in the Midwest Region.
Kalbarri is one of the fastest growing holiday towns in WA and for obvious reasons. The warm climate is suitable all year round for outdoor activities such as swimming, fishing and enjoying barbeques. Fishing from the beach or from boats is first class and the towns main activity, along with tourism is the rock lobster industry. Abundant and beautiful flora is just another attraction near the town site.
The history of Kalbarri is fascinating, though violent, as its treacherous coastline has resulted in many shipwrecks. Australia's first white settlers arrived here in 1629 though probably with some degree of reluctance. Commodore Pelsaert marooned two conspirators here for their activity in the terrible 'Batavia' mutiny.
The Parish Church is St Mark's (built 1992) and is located in Porter Street Kalbarri. The church is built from a design by architect Iris Rossen of Perth. The design is to suit North West conditions and is split into two internal sections separated by glass panels that allow half to be used as a function area, or an extension of the chapel area.
