Australia’s Anglican Archbishops express ‘profound disquiet’ about children held in detention this Easter
Resurrection of the Lord
O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever!
elcome to our parish website, thank you for visiting us.
In October 2009 two Anglican parishes, Djerrnong (formed by the merger of Holy Trinity Ringwood East, and Christ Church Heathmont in 2004), and Ringwood/Park Orchards (formed by the merger of Emmanuel Park Orchards, and St Paul’s Ringwood in 2003), amalgamated to form the new parish of Mullum Mullum Anglican Parish – Ringwood.
The Djerrnong and Park Orchards worship centres have now closed and we all worship together as one parish at St Paul’s Anglican Church in Ringwood.
The name Mullum Mullum was chosen because the Mullum Mullum Creek touches all parts of the new parish and the name Mullum Mullum is already known in the area.
We hope you will enjoy looking around the site and find it useful, and we also hope that you will come and visit us and find out a little about our parish and enjoy the fellowship that you will be offered.
You will find us a friendly and welcoming parish; and who knows, you may just decide to stay with us.
If you would like to find out more about the parish please contact us or just turn up at any of the activities, you will be most welcome.

Following the Resurrection
After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb.
And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.
His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men.
But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified.
He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.
Then go quickly and tell his disciples, 'He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.' This is my message for you."
So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Suddenly Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him.
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me." (vv 1–10)
O God, who for our redemption gave your
only-begotten Son to the death of the cross,
and by his glorious resurrection
delivered us from the power of our enemy:
Grant us so to die daily to sin,
that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
