The area
Address
Neighborhood: Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.

Renovation complete...finally
Apr 2021
Great to see that the renovation appears to now be completed.

Lovely historical church located on the Manly Corso and dates back to 1863.

They offer regular church services.

Handsome Church
Nov 2019
We stopped in as we were headed to the beach. It's an impressive facade. The interior is a basic church, nothing special for the tourist, but obviously important for the community.

Old Fashioned Church
Jul 2019
We were strolling on the Corso between the ferry and the beach and spotted this old fashioned church, so we stopped in. Impressive architecture and a big interior, obviously an important part of the community.

Construction site
May 2019 • Couples
This historic church located on the Manly Corso and dates back to 1863.

When we visited it was still a functioning church with baracades and work is currently underway for a $10 million redevelopment.

This has caused some issues in the community in relation to the redevelopment proposal being too tall, blocking views as well as perceived noise issued.

Whilst the retail stores attached have been demolished the historic façade still remains.

So the church currently doesn't look great.

The Church
Mar 2019 • Couples
You can't miss this church as you walk from the ferry on the Corso toward the beach. It's big and imposing and stands out from the commercial storefronts.

Historic Church
Feb 2019 • Solo
St Matthew's Anglican Church dates back to 1863, but the present brick English Gothic Revival church was built in 1930.

St Matthew's is currently involved in a development controversy. It owns the adjacent land on which were housed a row of Manly's historic shops. The church has knocked them down and is in the process of developing the site, which has not please many locals.

Among other complaints, some residents claim the development will be too high and will block their views, which they have enjoyed for decades.

Warm and welcoming

Visiting Manly, friends and I walked into St Mathew's church. Immediately on entering we were welcomed, but without a feeling of "gotcha"! There was genuine warmth. A lovely experience.
