adult learning

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.
