 OUR VALUES:

+Christ Centred - We are all about Jesus.

+Sustainable - We want to pass our faith on to the next generation, intentionally forming disciples who can make disciples and steward our resources well.

+Anglican - We cherish the gifts of our tradition, embracing a fresh take on Anglican worship.

+Sharing - We believe that in church everyone should get to play. We all have a role in sharing the good news of Jesus with our words, our hands, and our feet.

+Family - We value being an extended family of faith, with room for all generations. We seek to be welcoming, inclusive, and caring by offering pastoral care to one another.

OUR GOVERNANCE:

Vestry is the governance board of the parish, elected annually at the AGM. Currently we have 9 Vestry Members. This group meets monthly and is responsible for the finances and buildings of the parish. Vestry also oversees the employment of staff and all major decisions relating to the direction of ministry and mission. If you want to find out more about our strategic vision or inquire about minutes see our office. For clarification on any matters please speak to a member of Vestry.

As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
— Colossians 3

We are a family following the way of Jesus. We welcome everyone to join us for our services and our events throughout the year.

LIFE TOGETHER:

Baptism, Weddings, Funerals

Here at St John’s we are here to offer support in the tough times and to celebrate with you in the joyful times. We are here to offer support and love when you face a bereavement, celebrate with you when you commit to one another in marriage and give thanks when you commit to a life of faith in baptism.

Life is full of moments where we become suddenly aware of the sacredness of life and God’s presence in our midst. Even if we aren’t regular church-goers or profess belief in God, when we encounter new life, love, or death we find ourselves confronted with something that takes us beyond the everyday and points beyond itself. When we find ourselves in these moments it is important to take the time to meaningfully engage with God and with community. At St John’s we are committed to sharing life together - all the ups and downs and acknowledging God at work both in the ordinary and in the extraordinary moments of our lives.
