The Great St John’s Working Bee

Various dates throughout January 2023

Each year in January, when the halls are quiet and the Cathedral still, the Admin team gets stuck in and has a clean up. This year we want to go big and invite you to join them in The Great St John’s Working Bee!

See the church from a different perspective! Share your expertise! Learn new skills! Make friends and enjoy the fellowship of working alongside each other! Support the ministries of St John’s in a very practical way!

We will be cleaning and polishing throughout the Cathedral, Education Centre and Parish Halls. Equipment, cleaning products and instructions will be provided – please bring your gloves!

Let us know the dates you’re available in January and we’ll coordinate teams.
