Easter at St Michael’s

Think of ‘Glory’ and your mind is unlikely to go to a friendless, homeless, convicted criminal in suffering. Yet as Jesus comes close to living this experience, he calls it his ‘hour of glory’. Jesus looked towards heaven and prayed: ‘Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you’ (John 17:1). Easter is not only the turning point in history – Easter overturns our hopes and desires. 

Join us this Easter, as we see what makes it ‘glorious’. On Maundy Thursday, we see his selfless love in service. On Good Friday, we recall God Himself being torn apart as Christ bore our sins on the cross. On Easter Sunday, we celebrate the destruction of our great enemy death & the prospect of life eternal. In each, we’re refreshed to see what makes Jesus glorious and how we might share in that glory.

We look forward to meeting you this Easter!

The night before he died, Jesus prayed:
‘Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world […] I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.’ (John 17:24, 26)


How do I get to St Michael's?

We are one church at two locations!

Our Wollongong site is located at 74 Church Street (on the corner of Church and Market Streets)Click here for a map. 

Our Corrimal site is at 121 Princes Hwy, Corrimal. Click here for a map.

Where do I park?

 There is a small carpark on site, however we try to save these spaces for people with young children or those with accessibility needs. For street parking, try Coxs’ Lane (one-way), or look for spots on Midgley Street or Underwood Street.

On Sundays (and public holidays), we recommend parking in the Thomas St carpark across the road from church – on the northern side of the Church Hall.

There is limited parking available within the church grounds, including disabled parking spots. However, on Sundays we have a no-traffic zone in the driveway space between the two staircases and the Church Hall, in order to keep people safe as they move between the cathedral and the Hall. 

There are also paid parking meters in surrounding streets, and parking stations nearby. Street parking is usually free on public holidays!

What should I wear?

Wear whatever clothes you feel comfortable in. Our regular members don’t really ‘dress up’ for church.

When should I arrive?

Most people arrive within 5-10 minutes of the service start time to find a seat.

What is church like (at Easter)?

Church is a regular gathering where we hear from God’s word and respond to him in worship. Each of our Easter Sunday services will have their own ‘flavour’, but they also have a lot in common. Each service runs for around 60-75 minutes and includes singing, a time of prayer, a reading from the Bible and a 20-25 minute Bible talk (usually called a sermon) which explains its relevance for our lives today. After the more formal service, we spend time getting to know each other over tea/coffee and refreshments.* 
* We will serve Hot Cross buns at our services on Good Friday. And on Easter Sunday, there will be an Easter egg hunt for the kids after the 9:45am, 10am, 11:30am, & 6pm services.

Are children welcome?

Absolutely! Children are welcome at all our services. At Christmas time and during school holidays, our regular kids’ programs take a break, so we encourage children to stay with their parents during the service.

You are welcome to sit in the ministry centre, or there is a parent room to the right of our church space. This room has large windows with volume controllable audio feed and a large screen. There is a change table in the disabled toilet.

You are welcome to sit in the cathedral or in the multi-purpose room in the church office (across the courtyard from the cathedral). This space is used as a family room or cry-room with an audio-visual feed of the service, and men’s/women’s toilets available. If you require a change table, there is one in the accessible toilet room in the Church Hall.
During school terms, our regular Sunday services at 9:45am, 10am, 11:30am and 5pm offer weekly kids’ church programs (for children in pre-school to Year 6). Our 9:45am, 10am and 5pm services also have a crèche available (for children under 5 years of age). Read more about our kids programs here.

Accessibility at St Michael’s

At Corrimal, we ask our members to leave space in the carpark for those with accessibility needs. There is ramp access into the building from the carpark and an accessible toilet within the ministry centre. 

At the Cathedral, there are several disabled parking spaces available, and a wheelchair-accessible ramp connecting the carpark to our cathedral. We also have an accessible toilet in the church hall, a hearing-aid loop in the cathedral, large print Bibles, and vision-friendly data projections. We’d love to help make things more accessible for you, so please ask us if you need anything! Click here for more information.
