St John’s Anglican church (1841), which dates back to the earliest days of European settlement in this area, is alive in the twenty-first century with people of all ages. We look forward to welcoming you to our worship, community life and other activities. The church is open daily for prayer, reflection and visitors.
Sunday@9.30 is for families and people of all ages. We share the Eucharist (Holy Communion), enjoy the company of others and there are fun, Christ centred programs for children and youth.
Hardship and setback can strike anyone—an unexpected crisis, the loss of a job, health problems, family breakdown and a number of other reasons. We are here to help and support all people.
