History of Our Parish

Worship at Moggill commenced with a Sunday School which started in 1962 at the home of a local resident. In 1968, part of the former Moggill School became the Church of St. Michael and All Angels. The school was moved to its present site and dedicated as a church in July 1968 and in 1972 the hall was added.

The naming of the church was influenced by the children. During a visit to St. John’s Cathedral, the children became aware they were the only group without a banner depicting a patron saint. They sent a card to the Rector, requesting a saint of their own. Later, during Sunday School, after much discussion, St. Michael and All Angels was chosen.

Worship in the Mt. Crosby end of the parish began approx. 25 years ago. These weekly Eucharist services were held in private homes on a roster basis. When numbers grew, the services were re-located to an open-air site fondly known as “The Slab” at the Christian Community Centre, Swensons Road, Mt. Crosby. While the building was being constructed, safety issues necessitated a move to another location, Mt. Crosby State School, where it has remained ever since.

The Provisional Parish of Moggill – Mt. Crosby was formed out of the Kenmore Parish in 1993.
