The Shree Ghanapathy Temple has been operating as a Hindu place of worship for over 40 years. From its first service on Sunday 12th September 1981, the Shree Ghanapathy Temple has grown and adapted to the changing needs of the Hindu Community. We have a holistic, diverse and inclusive approach in providing for the spiritual, and emotional needs of the community.

Our temple is fortunate to have a group of amazing volunteers that reflects the diversity of those that use the Temple and its facilities. These volunteers are the cogs which keep the Temple moving and help to ensure that the Temple runs seamlessly throughout the year.

Everyone is welcome

The Temple was created to serve Lord Ganesha and his devotees, to give spiritual and emotional comfort to all those who need it.

The Temple is open to all who wish to come and pray, regardless of wealth or status, social background, gender identity or creed. We welcome those from outside our faith who wish to learn about our traditions and culture.


May Lord Ganapathy bless you with happiness and joy in your life
