The church offers a full range of pastoral services to the people of Canberra, whether they are a part of the Anglican Church or not. To make a booking, contact the church office.
Baptism & Thanksgiving
God’s kingdom is open to all who wish to enter. Baptism provides the means by which families and individuals can engage with God and develop their spiritual life. It is a sacrament available to children and adults.
Thanksgiving is a local alternative where parents can celebrate their child’s birth or adoption while not making any promises on their child’s behalf. It is available to those who feel less certain about church or religion.
In marriage, two lives become one and a new family is born. Marriage is an opportunity for two people to know and grow through a committed, life-long relationship.
Holy Covenant offers a religious space for weddings and preparation for the journey. We can help all relationships create a shared vision, deeper understanding, resolve conflict and communicate better.
The end of our mortal journey is the start of a new phase of life. Funerals are a chance to celebrate the life of beloved family members and an opportunity to know that God’s generous love will welcome us all home.
Members of our team can help plan a service for loved ones and lead them at Holy Covenant, in a funeral home, crematorium or grave side.
Diversity and Inclusion
God welcomes us not just for who we are but for all that we can and should become. Therefore our church makes space for people from all walks of life, capacities, abilities, genders and orientations.
We believe that rainbow Christians are a gift from God to the church. We choose to celebrate their relationships and embrace their capacity for leadership.
We understand that this is not the view of every Christian community. We also realize that this may not be the lived experience of people who are gender or sexually diverse or their families.
This is why we are an affirming, inclusive and diverse church for LGBT people and their loved ones.
