Naremburn Cammeray Anglican Church is a dynamic and growing Anglican Church on Sydney's North Shore. It is has three centres of Ministry - Naremburn, Cammeray and NAAC.


In post-World War I Sydney, many church buildings were built - Naremburn and Cammeray were just two of these. For decades Naremburn Anglican Church and Cammeray Anglican Church existed as separate churches.

Throughout the 1950s, '60s and '70s the Parish of St Cuthbert’s Naremburn and the Parish of All Saints' Cammeray had their ‘glory days’. In those days, the Sunday Schools had 350 children attending each Sunday and St Cuthbert’s won 3 cricket premierships in the local competition.

In the late 1970s a decision was made to join the two Parishes. At that time there were four Anglican church buildings, three church halls, and two church rectories.

By 1997, two of the Anglican churches had been ‘disposed of’, the three halls had been demolished, and the two rectories had been sold, and a new one built on site.


In recent years the decline reversed quite radically, evidenced by the fact that by the end of 2008 the Naremburn Cammeray Anglican Church has eight congregations and a normal Sunday attendance of over 500.

In 2008, the Naremburn building was deemed too small and run down to cater for the ongoing expansion of ministry and building work began on a new Parish Ministry Centre. This work is ongoing and seeks to provide for a growing ministry in a growing suburb. it is anticipated that these works will be complete by September 2009.

Further building works (this time at Cammeray) are in the planning stages.
