Horrified worshippers watched in person and online as a bishop was stabbed at the altar during a church service in Sydney on Sunday evening.

Three others were stabbed as people rushed to help. Police say there are no life-threatening wounds.

A man was arrested.

Heavily armed police were seen outside the Christ the Good Shepherd in suburban Wakely.

Hundreds of angry people hurried to the Orthodox Assyrian church and some clashed with riot police, with vehicles damaged.

The church and local leaders have pleaded for calm.

Authorities did not immediately report a motive for the attack.

Australians are still in shock after a lone assailant stabbed six people to death in a Sydney shopping mall on Saturday.

The church website identified the bishop as Mar Mari Emmanuel.
