Christianity Bootcamp

Interested in exploring some of the bigger questions of life? ‘Bootcamp’ is an annual program of teaching sessions (held approximately monthly) which provides an in-depth introduction to Christian belief, prayer and living. It is primarily geared towards enquirers, new Christians or those seeking baptism/confirmation. Topics covered can be found here.

St John's Care

St John’s Care offers practical support to people in need. It is one way as a faith community we put our faith into work and concrete action. Volunteering at SJC offers hands-on opportunities for people to work for the sake of others.

St John’s Schoolhouse Museum

The St John’s Schoolhouse Museum is Canberra’s first schoolhouse. If you are interested in volunteering as a guide, please contact us.


St John’s enjoys a long tradition of musical excellence. Our choir is a four part choir that sings at various services, including our monthly Choral Evensong at 5pm on the second Sunday of the month. Extra voices are always welcome. To find out more, visit here.

Gardening and Grounds

There are many opportunities to assist with mowing, weeding or gardening during the week. In addition, we have a fun working bee on the first Saturday of the month at 9.30am. Morning tea is provided.

Bell Ringing

Our bells are rung joyfully before and after many of our services, including weddings. At funeral services one bell is tolled for each year of the deceased's life.

Friends of St John’s

There are many people in Canberra who have a personal or family association with St John’s who want to support the work of the parish. The Friends of St John’s exists to bind together the many diverse people who love this place and wish to strengthen its community life. The ‘Friends’ support the work of the parish, help raise funds, and frequently organise distinguished guest speakers to events.
