Church life at St Johns.
Kid’s church is KAOS by name and nature. Kids Activities On Sunday is made up of a crèche, pre-school group, Years K-2 and Years 3-5. We also have a TOAST group which meet during the service for Year 6 through to Year 9. Learn more here!
St John’s Kids Club is a major community event! It happens in the first week of July school holidays and attracts about 150 kids over the week. Its centrepiece is a fun and gospel-teaching drama, and its outer fringes are found in pieces of craft and crazy games.
Youth | Friday Roast
Friday Nights from 6:30-9pm for dinner, games, a bible talk and small group discussion over God's word. We invite any year 7-12 youth to come along! Year 6 kids are invited along in terms 3 and 4 each year. Learn more about Friday Night Youth gathering here!
Youth | Sunday Toast
We run great weekly gatherings, with food, games & God's Word each Sunday morning during school term at both the 9am and 10:30am services. A group of years 6-9 youth who read the bible together, eat delicious food and learn how to live for Jesus. We welcome year 10-12 youth to join us at our 6.30pm evening service!
Small groups are exactly that. Small is beautiful because it means getting to know a few brothers and sisters much, much better around the bible and through prayer. These community groups are where our church life really takes off in growth and really gets grounded in love.
Seniors Friendship Group
The older members of our church are active in fellowship – running a fortnightly friendship group on Mondays 1-4pm in the hall, and occasional bus trips. They also meet fortnightly on Wednesdays in a prayer and discussion group at a local aged care village – St Brigid’s Green.
We run regular and diverse gatherings for women to increase connection and conversations. A safe and welcoming experience for women at church and their family/friends, of all ages, of all backgrounds. Keep an eye out for our upcoming women’s gatherings on our events page.
We have an active hub of Christian Surfers – some are advanced surfers reaching out with Jesus to some very regular local surfers, others who are very good at getting beginners onto boards, standing up and thinking about Jesus. If you surf and are interested in sharing both Jesus and the waves with others, we are keen to meet you.
