Anglican Parish Of Salisbury ST John’s Church

The historic St John’s Church was tragically gutted by fire in 1989. The redevelopment proposal moved from replacement to creating a vision for an Australian Church that was open to the community, visible, welcoming and engaging.

The new Auditorium was constructed in 1995 and subsequently the entire state heritage listed Chapel and Church Precinct were rebuilt and upgraded as funds became available.

This project is listed on the Register of the National Estate and received the inaugural Edmund Wright Heritage Award for Heritage Places in 2003.

Anglican Parish Of Glenelg Church Of ST Peter

The first Church of St Peter was built on Torrens Square in 1851. It was removed the following year because it was inadequate for the needs of an expanding community. The new church was consecrated in 1883. The architects were E.W. Wright and Reed. The chancel was extended in 1899, St Michael’s Chapel added in 1920 and the west porch added in 1924. The entire precinct is listed on the Register of State Heritage items and on the Register of the National Estate.

Adaptive reuse has been undertaken with chancel improvements in 2004 and the addition of architecturally innovative community facilities in 2011. Both of these projects were driven by the need to provide worship, community spaces, and administration and support facilities that welcome and engage in order to build a vibrant church community. This project received the Australian Civic Trust Colonel William Light Award for contribution to excellence in urban design in 2012.

Adelaide West Uniting Church

This is a regional church for the western suburbs of Adelaide prominently located in Brooklyn Park on Sir Donald Bradman Drive near the Adelaide Airport. It was funded by the closure and sale of four suburban church sites.

The built form reflects a contemporary, functional and practical approach to ecclesiastical architecture. It boldly markets the presence of the Uniting Church in the community. The facilities provide an auditorium for 450, foyer for 150 and adjacent Hall for 250. The spaces can all be visually and physically linked. Associated facilities include a commercial kitchen, administration, amenities, storage and youth space. The church community is alive and vibrant using the facilities seven days a week.
