The Mustard Seed Op Shop opened in 2007, and as in the parable, has grown from the smallest of beginnings into a flourishing concern, with sales making up approximately 50% of parish income. We are not only able to survive as a parish with near full-time ministry taking an active role in the community, but to also make significant financial contributions to community and humanitarian causes near and far.

The Mustard Seed is staffed by approximately 43 volunteers. Three-quarters of these are drawn from outside the parish, which illustrates the importance of the Mustard Seed to the local community, as a social hub and as an organisation with a strong sense of service and great generosity of spirit.


Plans to build an extension to re-house The Mustard Seed more comfortably, and return the hall and stage to community use, are currently on hold. Over 2019 - 2020, the foundations were repaired, a new kitchen and bathrooom for volunteer use, an extension to the deck, and ramp access were completed.  Fundraising  to cover the cost of the lower ramp is ongoing.
