Life Groups are at the heart of our church, strengthening our relationships with one another and with God, by studying the bible and sharing life together. In essence they reflect our vision of “connecting our community with Christ”.
Many St John’s members meet during the week in Life Groups, to share life and to read and discuss the bible together. Groups are usually between 6 to 8 people in size, because the focus is on relationships. Some groups are exclusively for women, some for men, and some intentionally mixed. There are even groups designed for parents with young children where baby-sitting is provided. Our goal is to see every member of St John’s able to benefit from being a part of a group.

What else can I get involved in?
Women in Fellowship
The ‘Women in Fellowship’ ministry has grown out of a desire to draw together the women of St John’s across different ages, life stages and church services. Our aim is to deepen our relationship with God and with one another. Regular events are organised across the year that are specifically tailored to encourage women to grow in their knowledge and love of our great God, as well as provide opportunities to invite friends along. These events are about bringing a community of women together. It doesn’t matter what age, stage of life, or background you come from, all are welcome.

Men@StJohns exists for men of all ages and stages to meet together for the purpose of building relationships that go beyond Sunday and spur each other on in all of life. We get together for all kinds of activities, from bare foot bowling and bushwalks, to watching a sports game together, to teaming up for church maintenance tasks or getting together for a meal (usually breakfast or dinner). These meals will usually be accompanied by a talk on a topic relevant to men seeking to honour Christ in their everyday life. We also attend a local Men’s Conference each year.
Mobile Community Pantry
In partnership with Anglicare, we host a Mobile Community Pantry each fortnight in our church hall where for a $10 contribution (EFTPOS available), eligible low-income families can take home a shopping bag full of food worth close to $60. The vans typically stock a range of non-perishable items like bags of rice and pasta, cans of beans and soups, boxes of cereal, tea and coffee, long-life milk, meal mixes and sauces.
