About our Parish Community
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.
Serving Christ, Proclaiming His Love
In each of our centres; Yeppoon and Emu Park, our hope is that you will meet Jesus Christ today, through his Word, in the power of His Spirit, and in the friendship, you find in our church. If you have questions or would like to talk to someone, please contact our office.

What we believe:
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.
