A Christian leader and several worshippers have been stabbed multiple times during a church service in Sydney, with the attack broadcast live on YouTube.

The alleged perpetrator, a 15-year-old, was arrested and taken to an undisclosed location by police as an angry crowd gathered outside the church.

It comes just two days since a man armed with a knife murdered six people in a Bondi Mall.

New South Wales Police says the incident at Wakeley’s Assyrian Christ The Good Shepherd Church occurred at 9.10pm last night.

The service was being live-streamed on the church’s YouTube page, graphic video of the incident showed a man dressed in a black hoodie approaching the Bishop and stabbing him multiple times in the head, neck and back.

Screams could be heard as other worshippers rushed to the bishop’s aid as he fell to the floor and two worshippers were also stabbed in a resulting confrontation.
