Welcome to the Anglican Parish of Cockle Bay. We have two Churches within the Parish, All Saints' Boolaroo and St David's Teralba, and a very close association with the Chapel of the Resurrection which is part Anglican Care's CA Brown Village. We seek to serve the needs of those living in North lake Macquarie.

We follow Jesus Christ as a Christian community. We seek to praise God in our worship, in our lives and in the service of our community. Our worship is reverent but relaxed. If you are new to church, not been for some time, or are a regular churchgoer, we warmly invite you to join us.
