Arvo with Heather

What is your story?
Contemporary Christians and the questions that we still ask…
Who am I? Where do I belong? What is my purpose? Or maybe you think: I’m too old? Too young? It’s too late? Expectations! Belonging!  Identity!  Purpose!  Destiny!  Hope!

An “Afternoon with Heather” is an opportunity for all St John's women and friends to come together to hear a message of hope and have an opportunity to find some answers. Enjoy some “together time” with your Sisters in Christ, young and old alike!
Please RSVP by Aug 15 by clicking here.

Grad Camp 2018

  • Youthworks Port Hacking (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Moving in and out of Youth Group and be a tough process for youth. To help them navigate this process we mark this transition with a yearly weekend away. The aim of Grad Camp is give the whole youth group a special time together to warmly welcome in the Year 6-ers as they come in and say a bitter-sweet farewell to the Year 12-ers as they depart for our 6pm congregation. We hope that by marking the occasion the transition into good church-life patterns for their next stage of life will be smoother so they will continue to hear the good news of Jesus in their next stage of life.

A Public Explanation: All Welcome!

A Public Explanation: All Welcome!

Christianity used to look normal. As time goes by it looks stranger. So we think it's time for Christians to make some public explanations of the kind of things most people wonder: is the Christian God good for the world?  Can Christians be part of a diverse society? Will Christians be bringers of peace? Why do Christians cling to 'T' truth? We are keen to explain if you are keen to ask. Please ask.

Let there be Christmas! St Johns Kids Christmas Fun

Christmas is upon us and all the accompanying silliness. Why not take some time out as a family and prepare for Christmas together in a fun place? St John's is following up our July Kids Club 'Let There Be Rock!' with a great event called 'Let There Be Christmas!'. Come together and make your personal stocking. Fill it with gingerbread people. Throw in a gift for yourself - your own personalised pencil case. Make a decoration or two for your tree. Eat some treats. 

It'll be a great time together. Well remind the kids what Christmas is all about too along the way and we are trying to tease Rocky out of retirement to lead a rockin' carol or two. Why not come along! Spaces are minimal - so register quickly, and as for cost - this one's on us!
