Ten congregations meet at St. John’s each Sunday. They meet in one of four languages: English, Cantonese, Mandarin and Persian (Farsi). If you are new to St. John’s please collect a Welcome to St. John’s Brochure from a welcomer on your way in.
A traditional Anglican Prayer Book Communion Service held in the Cathedral. It is a quiet and reflective service which makes use of the superb St. John’s pipe organ. Join us afterwards for refreshments served in the Education Centre foyer each week.
Starts off with a kid’s presentation. Afterwards they go out to their own ‘Kid’s Church’. (All the leaders are trained in safe ministry and have current Working with Children’s Checks.) The adults enjoy a mix of contemporary and traditional singing. Stay for refreshments served outside in the sunshine.
9.30am Engage (Richard Johnson Room)
Engage is the name of our Youth Congregation for those in Years 7 – 12 at school. Held in the Richard Johnson Room during school terms, they enjoy singing, Bible teaching and small groups.
Many of our young adults join others in this congregation once they finish high-school and graduate from the Engage youth congregation. The meetings include a mix of contemporary and traditional singing. Stay for refreshments served in the back of the church.
