Welcome to St John's

You may have noticed our signboards; caught the splash of summer colour in our gardens; or been drawn to the understated facade of a church that has been a fixture of this community since 1891.

But, have you met our people?

We are:

  • Christians, part of the Anglican communion;
  • representative of all ages and ail economic groups;
  • racially and ethnically diverse; of differing sexual orientations;
  • married and single; adults, youth and children;
  • and drawn from all areas of the city, as well as centretown.

But more, we are:

  • sympathetic to the struggles that many of us experience throughout life;
  • aware of and knowledgeable about the legacy of abuse and violence;
  • indignant about injustice and inequality;
  • humanly flawed and seeking enlightenment;

But above all, we are:

  • committed to living in respectful community, in God's name.

We seek to serve:

  • anyone in need, the whole community;
  • those living with the impact of HIV and AIDS;
  • those who hear the rhythm of God's voice in music;
  • survivors of violence and abuse;
  • the faithful as well as the seekers.

We do this through:

  • worship and prayer;
  • Christian education programs for all ages;
  • a lyrical choir;
  • a service of prayer meditation for people concerned with HIV and AIDS;
  • small groups of bible study and discussion;
  • prayer groups;
  • youth and adult social opportunities;
  • services to the elderly; to the physically challenged; to those who are ill;
  • a community shop;
  • a drop in and resource centre for women in crisis;
  • various self help groups;
  • support of community programs for the hungry, the unemployed and the mentally handicapped;
  • and the response of our parishioners and staff to needs as they present themselves.
