There is a lively program of educational activities, groups and classes at St John’s. These offer parishioners and other interested people opportunities to learn more about the Christian faith in an inclusive, open environment, and to engage with important issues in contemporary Australian life.
Home groups meet in parishioners’ homes within a few kilometres of St John’s Church. All groups meet in the evening from 8.00 pm until about 9.30pm. Led by a lay person, they discuss a passage of scripture, a relevant book, or a social issue. The evening concludes with a light supper and a time of sharing or further informal discussion.

St Johns has some useful resource booklets for private study, prayer and reflection.
St Johns produces a 'Journal of Scripture and prayer' booklet for each season of the Christian Year. The booklet contains the Gospel reading for each day from the lectionary (set readings) of the Anglican Church of Australia. It also contains a brief introduction to the season, and provides some prayers to use for morning and evening.
