PLACES OF WORSHIP

CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS

The Church of All Nations (CAN) was so named in the 1960s when it offered simultaneous translation of the Sunday service into 5 or 6 different languages, with interpreter booths in the balcony and headsets in every pew. But this church’s history in Carlton stretches back almost 150 years. In August 2007 we celebrated the 130th anniversary of our magnificent pipe organ, listed by Heritage Victoria.

Today, the Church of All Nations is a busy community hub every day of the week. It is host to the Carlton Senior Citizens’ Centre, the Indigenous Hospitality House and CAN Community Support.

ST JUDE’S

Today St Jude’s is a diverse community of people, gathered from all over Melbourne – 100 different postcodes at last count. Over 500 of them meet in 6 different congregations each Sunday, which each try to cater for a different group: Families, couples and singles; youth; young workers; students; and residents of the nearby public housing estates.
