Singers leading worship. We value the participation of people in worship at St Johns, including preparing the worship centre for services, welcoming people, reading lessons, singing and assisting the Pastors with leading the worship services.
Children are welcomed as a vital part of the St Johns community and worship life, and are regular participants on our 9am and 11am services. We believe that children should play an active and creative role within the life of the congregation.
