'Ring out, ye crystal spheres! Once bless our human ears, if ye have power to touch our senses so...'

John Milton 1608 - 1674


About us


Anglicans have celebrated faith and life in Christ Church Beechworth and St Jude's Eldorado for more than 150 years. We worship in the Anglo-Catholic tradition and in prayer and daily life we seek to live out the message of Jesus Christ: of a God of generous and all-encompassing love for all.

Our shared ministry serves the Beechworth and Yackandandah parochial district congregations of Christ Church Beechworth, St Jude's Eldorado, Holy Trinity Yackandandah, St Paul's Allans Flat, St Andrew's Dederang, St Mark's Tangambalanga and St Aidan's Tawonga and their communities. Our parishes are among 23 that make up the Anglican Diocese of Wangaratta.

Safe Church


Beechworth Anglican Parish maintains the Anglican Church of Australia's Safe Church standards in policy and practice. These standards are detailed on the Anglican Diocese of Wangaratta website.
