About Us

Our Story

In 2021 four parishes came together to form a new single parish, The Parish of East Lake Macquarie which we often refer to as ELMAC.

Those Parishes were

  • Belmont,
  • Belmont-North/Redhead,
  • Swansea and
  • Windale.

The amalgamation presents us with both challenges and opportunities. Ever since Abraham departed from Ur of the Chaldees if not before, we have been 'the people of the journey.'  It seems there is always a new twist in the road, a new pothole or speed hump, and so it is for us all, and so it is for us as a new Parish. We are still discovering what it means to be a single Parish, and you are welcome to walk with us, some part of the way.
