We're a diverse community of people seeking to live and love like Jesus.
News & Events
Over the last little while our church has been working through how to make some significant changes to our services. After much discussion at a parish council level, beginning last October, and after feedback from the wider parish, we released the following letter to members of our church. Upcoming Service Changes Thank you to everyone…
We’re looking forward to joining with you this Easter season to remember and celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus some 2,000 years ago. We’ll be holding services on both Good Friday (30th March) and Easter Sunday (1st April) in both our centres. Lindisfarne – St Aidans Good Friday 10am: A traditional reflective service that…
During Lent 2018, our church will be joining with the rest of the Anglican Diocese of Tasmania in observing a season of Lament and Repentance for our failures in the past. Our hope and prayer is that this will be a time of spiritual healing for our Diocese and our parish and a preparation for…
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!
You can follow Chris on Twitter @chrisbowditch to find out more about him.
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.
