Found St Peters Eastern Hill behind another Church on the corner of Albert Street opposite the Eastern Hill Fire Station. It has a very long history going back to 1847. Some very nice stained glass windows and 12 stations of the cross icons that are across the wall over the altar. This is the oldest Anglican parish church still on... More

St Peter's Eastern Hill is part of the Anglican (Church of England) denomination. Worship is in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, meaning it's more formal and ritualistic than in most Protestant churches. St Peter's church attracts people who appreciate the classical/sacramental music that is part of the services, and it's also known as a gay-friendly place. There is a history of connection... More

St Peter's Church has a very significant position in Melbourne's history but alas it is very slack in communicating it's history, it's architectural features, the stories of its priests and parishoners. Perhaps it doesn't care! That's a pity!

It's not just any church; mid day services run throughout the week for anyone to swing by - it's kinda neat -a place which feeds your soul; leaving feeling way better after the expereince. Oh yeah - the clergy care!

This little church opposite St Patrick's Cathedral is one of the first in Melbourne. The foundation stone was laid in 1846, and a couple of year's later a letter was read out on the steps from Queen Victoria declaring Melbourne a city. The church's official title is St Peter's Eastern Hill. It is Anglican and high mass is celebrated every... More

This city Anglican parish church dates from around1846 and services/masses are in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. It is classified by both Heritage Victoria and the National Trust as being of the highest level of historical significance partly because there are not many buildings remaining in Melbourne from before the 1850s. Inside are fine artworks: 19th and 20th century stained glass, paintings,... More
