We meet in the inner northern suburbs of Hobart but our members live in many different places around the greater Hobart area. Most of our services are held in two church buildings located in the suburb of New Town.


St James’ Anglican

460 Elizabeth Street (cnr of Rupert Ave), New Town

St James

St James Anglican meets closest to the city. We meet in New Town at the southern end just 2 km north of the city centre on the edge of the suburbs of North Hobart and Mount Stuart. St James was established in 1916 to serve the growing community around Augusta Road, New Town.

St John’s Anglican

14 St John’s Avenue, New Town

St johns


St John’s Anglican meets in the St John’s Park Precinct at the northern end of New Town 4 km from the Hobart city centre. St John’s Park is situated on the edge of the suburbs of New Town and Moonah. The historic St John’s building was opened in 1835 and is the oldest church building in continual use in our city.


Both St James’ and St John’s church buildings have wheelchair accessible entrances at street level. At St James easy access is available from Rupert Avenue and at St John’s from St John’s Avenue. St James Hall, 462 Elizabeth St, New Town, was renovated in 2014 to provide easy access.


At St James a few parking spaces are available on site for early birds or you can park on Rupert Avenue or nearby in Augusta Road. At St John’s, parking is available along St John’s Avenue.

Please respect our neighbours and ensure access is not blocked for local residents.
