Founded as an Anglican religious community by Fr Gerald Tucker, the Brotherhood of St Laurence is one of Australia’s most visionary and inspiring agencies of social action and advocacy. It is named for the third-century saint who when told to hand over the treasures of the church to the Roman Imperial authorities, gathered together all the poor, to whom he had distributed the wealth, and said ‘Here are the treasures of the church.’ The BSL is dedicated to the vision of an Australia free of poverty.

In partnership with All Saints, the Brotherhood of St Laurence operates the op shop in what was once the All Saints hall, the brick building at the back right-hand corner of the site.

The shop offers quality used clothing, books and small homewares at excellent prices. A very friendly staff make it a good place to visit.

Opening hours

The shop is open from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm from Tuesdays to Saturdays. Sorry, it is closed on Sundays and Mondays and public holidays. If in doubt, please contact the store to check before your visit.


Donations are welcome , but only during opening hours. Please do not leave bagged or loose clothes or other donations at a time when no staff are there to receive them. Instead, bear with us and come back when we can gratefully accept them.

Volunteer work

If you are interested in working in the shop on a voluntary basis, please let the manager know during your visit, or call 9489 6183 during opening hours. This is a good way both to gain retail work experience and to contribute to your community.

A well-managed, happy place to work
