St Joseph the Worker Parish

St. Joseph the Worker, Northolt is a lively, multi-cultural Anglican Church in South Northolt which attracts people of all ages and backgrounds. Like our Patron, St. Joseph, we want to be open and obedient to God in all that we do. Our vision is to be a community of people who grow in Christ as we seek to serve.

St. Joseph's is rooted in Anglo Catholic tradition in the way we express our faith through Liturgy alongside a renewed Charismatic flavour in seeking to be gifted by the Holy Spirit and Contemporary in our style of worship. We are committed to exploring God's word in the scriptures and building a community shaped by God's word to share with all around us.
