Oaktree Anglican was formed in November 2014 when the two parishes of St Mary’s Caulfield and St Clement’s Elsternwick merged to become one church community. We continue our rich spiritual heritage of more than 150 years, through evangelical biblical teaching, steadfast prayer, a reliance on the gifts and empowering of the Holy Spirit, and an outward-looking focus to reach communities near and far with the message of Jesus Christ.
We are a church for all ages and seasons of life. We worship in both traditional and contemporary styles, warmly welcoming one another and the presence of God. We are a place of healing, nurture and growth for people from a wide range of faith backgrounds.
The name Oaktree symbolises the type of church we already are and will be in the future: a church that endures – sturdy and grounded; a place of refuge and shelter; a place of spiritual growth – fertile and life-giving; and a spiritual landmark in our community.
