Bringing humanity to life

Be a part of our inclusive community where everyone is welcomed, embraced and challenged.

The Pelican Community and Function Centre aims to provide an affordable venue for diverse community groups. It is suitable for a range of activities, including classes, dinners, and parties.

It was the early Church that said: “The Glory of God is the human person fully alive.” We are a community working towards a fully flourishing humanity, alive to beauty, dignity and love.
