Historic St John’s alive in the 21st century with people

St John’s Anglican Church (consecrated in 1845) and its historic precinct is one of Canberra’s treasures. The Church, Churchyard and Schoolhouse Museum predate the nation’s capital by 70 years and they are living reminders of our pioneering farming community.

But most importantly, St John’s is alive in the twenty-first century with people of all ages who seek to make the precinct a place of welcome, sanctuary and hospitality for all who come.  Our Vision is “to be a vibrant Christ-centred community that engages and transforms the heart and soul of Canberra.”

We look forward to welcoming you to our worship, community life and other activities.

St Johns balloonsChristianity makes more sense when it is lived and experienced in community with real people. It provides us with a way of living which helps us make sense of our world and our lives.


St John’s is more than a historic building.  We are a community of people of all ages with children and youth programs.  Our aim is to be a place where people can be warmly welcomed and encounter God in the 21st-century.
