KYCK 2018

We will be heading to Katoomba in the lovely Blue Mountains to attend a youth convention called KYCK. KYCK is run by an organisation called Katoomba Christian Conventions and is specifically aimed at teens. It usually attracts around 2,000 youth per weekend it is held. The program is made up of 6 Bible talks, interspersed with food breaks, free time and other organised (and fun) activities. This year, we plan to say an extra day in the mountains to spend extra time with our year 12 mob before they get their heads stuck into the HSC. Please register and pay online here

Youth Leader's Retreat

As the new year rolls around and with fresh new faces joining our team, we think it's a pretty great idea to escape to the coast and spend some time having fun, dreaming big, praying deep and training well together. For those who serve our youth at St John's (or plan to), keep this date free! We have generously been given a house in Sussex for the weekend and look forward to this time to together as a team!

Christmas Day

As Christmas comes around, we stop in the midst of our busy lives to remember that God sent His Son from the heights of heaven to a lowly manger. Looking past the tinsel and twinkle lights, at Christmas we see God become man and are reminded of the unfathomable gift of hope for the world. We warmly welcome you to join us for our 9am Christmas service.

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!
