Dean of Sydney
View all articles by Kanishka Raffel


Welcome to my webpage

St Andrew's Cathedral is a great centre for Biblical Teaching and Evangelism.  Our congregations warmly welcome visitors in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ every week and our prayerful concern is that people may come to know and love our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

If you are in Sydney some time, come and join us at the Cathedral.  We are easy to find - we are situated above Town Hall Station on George Street.

Details of our programmes and activities can be found on the Cathedral website:


Kanishka was born in London to Sri Lankan parents and was raised as a Buddhist.

While studying law at Sydney University a friend gave him a copy of The Gospel according to John and he subsequently became a Christian.

Prior to becoming Dean in 2016, Kanishka served as Rector of St Matthew’s in Perth. He is married to Cailey and they have two daughters.
