About

Who We Are

Holy Covenant Anglican Church is a parish of the Anglican Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn. We are located in the Belconnen area of Canberra in Cook just near the Jamison Centre.

As a church we value diversity and inclusion. It takes faith, hope and love to nourish generosity of heart, mind and spirit. Everyone flourishes when people are treated with dignity and compassion. We allow people to exercise their gifts irrespective of their age or able-bodyness, gender or orientation.  This is how we help compassion and justice to grow in the world or what Jesus called, ‘the kingdom of God.’
