Saints, Sinners and Goalposts – A history of All Saints East St Kilda

By Colin Holden

All Saints East St Kilda is no ordinary church. Its building is the largest parish church in Australia, when measured by floor space. Visitors can be embarrassed by the nineteenth-century riches in its gem-like interior. For early Melbourne Anglicans, it was the diocese's leading 'high' church. From the beginning of the twenty-first century it has become a home to traditionalist Anglicans. Here, the story of the church community is told within the context of a growing and changing Melbourne, and most recently against the backdrop of cultural shifts at a national level.
