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.
farewell bishop barbara
On Sunday 17 August St John's farewelled Bishop Barbara Darling as she retires from her ministry among us. Bp Barbara has been an inspiration and kind shepherd to St John's during her time as Bishop of the Eastern Region. We wish her every blessing for her retirement.
Bp Barbara holds an Ikon of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, given to her by St John's. Bishop Barbara was consecrated bishop on the Feast of the Visitation, 31 May 2008. Bishop Barbara thanked the parish warmly for this gift.
