Bringing the good news to Broome
We opened our doors on April 13, 1903 to the frontier pearling town of Broome. With hard conditions on the luggers, stifling wet seasons, the ‘big blows’ claiming many lives, and even bombing raids during World War 2, life in here can be tough. The congregation has always been keen to let the town people know ‘Jesus loves Broome’. So, for over a century, Broome Anglican Church has played its part in bringing the good news of salvation in Jesus to the western Kimberley.
Our family congregation is a diverse group. As a church, we are committed to the Bible and so our times of meeting together have teaching the Bible at the centre.
We have two congregations meeting each week and have a Sunday School for children.
9:00am: As well as a regular service, we have the Lord’s Supper (or Holy Communion) on the first Sunday of each month. After the service, we meet in the church grounds for fellowship and morning tea.
6:00pm: Our People’s Church congregation is especially designed for Aboriginal folk, but everyone is welcome to join with us. Most of our members live in Broome, but come from communities in the Kimberley. After the service, there is supper providing a time to continue in fellowship together.
