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 on Wednesdays for private prayer and reflection.

What a great joy it was to gather as a St John’s Anglican community Canberra on the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost - 9 August 2020. We are worshipping in the hall because of COVID-19 restrictions. The preacher is Canon Margaret Emil. The Scripture readings are Romans 10:4-15 and Matthew 14:22-36.
The Parish Office is closed. You are welcome to contact Canons Paul, Margaret and Kevin and Rev'd Vicky on their mobile phones.
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.
Wednesday at 10 am. The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) and the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible have nurtured Anglicans for over three hundred years in the Christian faith.
St John's is a popular destination for many couples, especially those requiring a more intimate worship space.
The closure of worship and other parish activities has significant financial implications for the parish. Read a letter from the Presiding Member of Parish Council.
