St James the Fisherman - Yeppoon

at 15 Housden Place

This site commands a wonderful view of the sea with the Keppel islands a short distance away. The church captures this view and makes it a vital part of our fellowship space. The building, dedicated in November 2015, seats over 200 people.

Our style of church is relaxed and dignified expressing the richness of Anglican tradition and its engagement with contemporary society. 

Saturday evening @ 6:00pm (5:30pm from May to the first weekend of September)  has a relaxed mix of contemporary and traditional elements. Once a month, on the first Saturday, we share in a meal together after the service.

Sunday morning @7:30 am is enjoyed by the older members of the parish with its sung Eucharist and wonderful mixture of traditional and contemporary singing. Following the service there is a sumptuous morning tea and warm fellowship where God’s love and support are freely shown.

Sunday morning @ 9:30 am is a family service. It begins with a time of singing together. The music is contemporary and the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming to families with children. During the service young children may attend Sunday School where they learn in an appropriate and safe environment about the Lord Jesus. The Sunday School uses material produced by Scripture Union.

Our Mission

Serving Christ, Proclaiming His Love

What we believe:

  • • There is a God who created a beautiful world (just look out the windows of our Yeppoon church to see for yourself!).
  • Jesus of Nazareth, who is God in flesh, has defeated death and offers a restored relationship between God and humanity.
  • • It is an essential part of our Christian lives that we provide for those who cannot provide for themselves.
  • • Jesus, who is truly God and truly human, made God the Father known to us when he walked on earth. In return, the Father has given Jesus the highest name, above every other name, so that every person should kneel before him and declare that Jesus is Lord - he is the boss.
  • • Jesus has sent God the Holy Spirit into the world to convince us that Jesus is in fact Lord.
  • • The Bible is God’s word which, by reading, we get to know God better and learn how to live in a way that pleases him.
  • • It is an essential part of our Christian lives that we meet together in church to give a visible expression of the community into which God has called us.

Originally constructed in 1893 on a site about 1 km away this building was relocated to its present site in 1911.

The congregation works hard to ensure this classic part of the towns architectural history is preserved for the future use of God’s people and the community.


Sunday at 8:30 am is the only service at Emu Park and uses the second order from  A Prayer  Book for  Australia. This congregation enjoys welcoming new members. Church is followed by a wonderful morning tea and warm fellowship.
