The Chapel

St Barnabas Chapel is available to the wider Abbey community for funerals, weddings and other community-based events of worship or celebration.

The beautiful 106 year-old, heritage weatherboard Chapel at The Abbey began its life on the mainland as the Church of St Barnabas at Bundalaguah, near Maffra in Gippsland.

On 21 March 1990 the church structure was brought, in two halves, across on the Raymond Island Ferry.

The Chapel now at home at The Abbey, overlooks Lake Victoria and is appreciated by the many people who visit The Abbey.

The Abbey Chapel is available for reflection and meditation.

The Abbey Priest can be contacted for weddings, funerals and other events. Pricing is available upon enquiry.
