As we seek to see our city transformed by the hope of the risen Christ, we want people to connect with each other and grow as disciples. We do this by being a church of Growth Groups. Our Growth Groups compliment our Sunday gatherings by bringing together smaller groups during the week.

We are a church of Growth Groups—not a church with Growth Groups.

Being a church of Growth Groups means we care for each other
in a personal way: through the good times and the bad,
through the mundane and the exciting—following Jesus!

Our Growth Groups meet weekly throughout the school term to discuss life, Jesus and how they intersect. We read the Bible together, deepen our understanding of it, and sharpen one another in our faith. We pray for each other, encourage one another and serve together.

Our Growth Groups are diverse—meeting across the Parramatta, Hills, and Cumberland areas at various times throughout the week. Our youth meet in age-appropriate groups after Engage on a Sunday morning.

If you are new to St John’s, we encourage you to join our next Explore course as a pathway into our Growth Groups.
