The service of Holy Communion is said every week in the Chapel, which is always open for private prayer.
When we recall the sight of the re-enactment First Fleet sailing through the heads of Botany Bay that blue and gold morning on January 18, 1988 – white sails billowing above those majestic square-rigged ships, colourful pennants flying – and again on January 26 into Port Jackson, we must feel closer to Captain Arthur Phillip and his brave Captains and men. Admiral Phillip’s vision of a thousand ships of the line lying at anchor in the beautiful harbour of Port Jackson came close to fulfilment on two bicentennial occasions – Australia Day and the Naval Salute.
