Everyone is welcome at St John's. Christ our gracious host welcomes all at the banquet of Word and Sacrament - regardless of gender, race, colour, sexual orientation, social status or any other distinction.

st john's

St John’s Church is a contemporary catholic Anglican parish in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. It is a parish of the Diocese of Melbourne in the Anglican Church of Australia.

Our corporate life cherishes word and sacrament and is embedded in prayer and worship. We are committed to compassion and justice. St John's is an inclusive parish  community welcoming people of all ages, gender, race, colour, creed and sexual orientation.

The parish community acknowledges the traditional custodians  of the land on which St John's is built and pays their respects to the elders.

Our mission is to bring people into communion with God and with each other. Our mission is centred in Camberwell Junction and beyond – to other people and the wider needs to which God calls us.
