st.mary’s sunbury

This new worship and parish centre has fostered a dynamic community relationship in the township of Sunbury enhancing engagement with local schools and community groups as well as providing for worship and parish activities.  The linear parish centre addresses a commercial street with public café, meeting rooms, entry lobby, parish offices and support facilities. There is a further 200m2 of halls and meeting rooms behind, divisible by operable walls and surrounding a courtyard playground.  A flexible, flat floored worship space sits adjacent, accommodating a congregation of up to 350. Opening large sliding doors behind the sanctuary reveals an external dais addressing Sunbury’s Common and enabling the hosting of outdoor events and services from the worship space.
