We're a church that wants to grow and change as we seek to worship God and do life together in new and traditional ways for all ages.

Over the latter half of June and through early July we’ve been responding to the Diocesan Vision by reflecting on six questions. This process has been invaluable as Chris has heard from a wide variety of parish members what they love about our church and what we hope and dream might become of our future…
‘A church for Tasmania making disciples of Jesus’ On Pentecost Sunday (4th June) our new vision for the diocese was released. We heard on that Sunday that God gives us the gift of His Holy Spirit to empower us for His mission of making disciples of all nations. How appropriate then that this should be the…
There’s nothing better than home cooked slice by grandma, locally grown fresh produce or handmade knitwear for babies. This is just some of the awesome stuff you can find in the St Aidan’s Little Shop on Lincoln Street, just next to the Mower shop and opposite Currency Cafe. Money raised helps us help our community.
Chris is our Senior Minister and began his ministry at St Aidans in April 2017. Born in NSW, he moved to Tasmania when he was 10 and went to school and University in Hobart. In 2008 he left the Island state for Melbourne where he worked as a Youth Minister for Holy Trinity Doncaster and studied his Masters of Divinity at Ridley College. During this time he met the wonderful Ellisa and they were married in 2010. In 2013 Chris and Ellisa returned to Tasmania where Chris worked in a variety of leadership roles at Wellspring Anglican Church up until the move to Lindisfarne.
In 2016 they welcomed their first daughter Amity into their lives with great joy. The Bowditch's love Tasmania and enjoy exercise, watching Survivor, and tasty food. They love meeting new people and look forward to saying hello next time you're in town!

Honor has been part of our church since 1972 serving in a variety of honorary roles in that time. She began following Jesus in 1949, while attending All Souls’ Church in London. She trained in London at King’s College as a high school teacher of English, and also qualified as a teacher of speech and drama. During this time she was exposed to a wide variety of worship styles which have shaped her ministry.
In 1961, not long after moving to Tasmania from England, Honor married Michael (Mick) Yearsley (who died suddenly in 1987) and they had three children who continue to live in Hobart with their families.
Honor has served as a non-stipendiary diocesan lay reader and, finally, from 1992, as a priest, filling many and varied roles in the diocese and in the parish. This has given her great experience that we are blessed to draw on as a church.
Honor is thankful to God for all He has done and is doing in our parish and in her life. She is still ready to serve Him and his people here in whatever way she can.
We're an Anglican Church seeking to know Jesus through His word in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus lived, died and rose again and that through faith in Him we can be forgiven and restored to right relationship with our Creator.
We believe that our faith can be expressed in both traditional and contemporary ways and are seeking to grow a diversity of worship expressions in our church life.
We believe that Jesus is worth investigating and would love to meet anyone who's interested in finding out more about what it means to follow Him.
If you're interested in finding out more about Jesus or our church, we'd love to hear from you. Likewise, if you've got an enquiry about weddings, baptisms or funerals, we'd also love to hear from you.
