JULY 2004




Cover Picture

All Saints, Wickham Terrace was the first Anglican Church in Brisbane. Built in a style developed in British India, it is a boldly Gothic construction, adapted to the tropics. Now situated in down-town Brisbane and a stone's throw from the ambitious cathedral (still unfinished) All Saints exercises a lively inner city ministry. And freshly squeezed orange juice in the cool of the morning under the jacaranda tree!

Last month's cover photo was taken by John R. Salmon and full details of the parish can be found on
