Surrounded by higher rise buildings, cheap Asian food shops and tacky shops this old church has character and history. The foundation stone was laid in 1840 and and survived until now although few would see it. Beautiful old building and worth a visit if you are near Central station

Most of Sydney's Anglican churches are aligned with the Evangelical or 'Low' approach to the scriptures, doctrine and worship. Christ Church Saint Laurence is exceptional in that it is 'High', Anglo-Catholic. There is an emphasis on sacraments, the Mass and liturgy, and a high standard of sacred music, bell ringing and liturgical choir participation.
The church building dates from 1845, worship in the area from 1838. The church building is stone and is in the Gothic style, with timber featured inside. Adjoining the church are a rectory and a former school-house which now serves as an arts centre.
There are a number of church services on Sundays and during the week.

I took the train to Central this morning and turned towards George Street to proceed to Town Hall when a church spire caught my eye.

This is a quaint Anglican Church built in 1845 and was open for visitors. At 10 am I was the only person in the church.....

A rare Anglo-Catholic haven in the middle of the very evangelical Anglican diocese of Sydney. A place that accepts everyone without condemnation, including gays and female priests. The ceremonies are beautiful, especially Solemn High Mass and Solemn Evensong, and the choir is one of the best in Sydney. There is a very pure and spiritual feeling, which can be strongly felt the moment you step inside.

I had been walking all day and was really tired. When I saw this place I knew I had to go in have a moment with Him and rest myself. I did and the place is great.

We were on our walk to Broadway and came by this church after a short walk from our hotel. It was a Saturday morning and the church was quiet.

Following the Gothic-Anglican styled of architectural design, the church looked beautiful and has its own footage despite of being in an area with lots of highrise buildings and does not lose its shine.

Although it is not as big as other churches we had visited, it does have the kind of cottage-styled church building feeling and has a nice garden surrounding it. And one can experience peace, calmness in the tranquil environment.

So we had a short walk around before continuing our way to Broadway.

Early morning walk and stumbled in during prayers. A lovely small church in the middle of skyscrapers - the land must be worth a fortune!
Beautiful inside and out

A beautiful heritage listed Anglo Catholic Church. It offers Sunday and daily services. Very quiet environment in the busy central business district. A good place for a prayer or just a visit in other spiritual and cultural purposes. Staff there was very friendly and would explain briefly what's going on in the Church. To help preserve the historical buildings, they welcome any donations. voluntarily.

It is one of the oldest churches in Sydney. Of Anglo-Catholic worship, it is built with the characteristic local sandstone and its architecture is typical of the English neo-Gothic style.
Externally, its tall copper spire stands out above the entrance to the temple.
The interior is quite simple. It has a very attractive floor, notable pointed arches, especially the triumphal arch, windows with beautiful stained glass windows that include tracery in some cases, an organ and a splendid Main Chapel.
