St John’s Church

Church in Surry Hills & Darlinghurst

This lovely neo-Gothic sandstone church (1858) makes for a hushed escape from the urban jangle of Darlinghurst Rd. There's some fine stained glass; the bell in the entrance is from the Dunbar, which sank off Sydney in 1857. The Anglican congregation runs the adjacent Rough Edges Community Centre on Victoria St, working with the area’s many homeless.
