Welcome to the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo,
Debre Amin Abune Teklehaimanot Church in Perth, Western Australia.

The Debre Amin Abune Teklehaimanot Church was established 1998 European Calendar by a few devout Christians.
What’s astonishing is they were determined to do so by forming a church council even when they didn’t have a priest.
In 2001 with the grace of All Mighty God our church was blessed with a clergy man. This time credit to the Egyptian Coptic Church in Perth, our church was able to use their church and its resources for two years. Prior to that, we have been using St Aloysius Church in Shenton Park, Subiaco.

In 2003 with the determination of the parishioners a 3700 m2 land was bought, customised and were able to have our own church.
In 2005 our church blessed by His Holiness Abune Paulos, Patriarch of Ethiopia, Ichege of the See of St Teklehaimanot, Archbishop of Axum and president of world council of churches, continued its services. The Holy Tablet was brought to our church and of course the procession was held by Archbishop Abune Yosef.

But then again due to the fact that the land was only 3700 m2, there was no sufficient parking area; the church was also surrounded by factories, the noise from relentless trains, the location being dangerous due to the adjacent high way, the church council was forced to look for bigger and better property.
Nevertheless, in 2013 after huge effort and ups and downs, a 33400 m2 land was purchased and approved by the Holy Synods. The land consisted of a villa with six bed rooms and three large halls. A long drive way and 110 parking bays have been developed. At the moment the church is fully furnished and decorated fulfilling all the church requirements.

The church aims to equip the parishioners with Holy books to enable them to strength their faith.
