Our Goal: Great groups and thriving Christians embrace a lifestyle of focused ministry, serving others out of their spiritual giftedness and mutual encouragement.
Serve reminds us of our responsibility to work alongside fellow believers. St John’s is full of ministry and service opportunities—from cooking a meal to hosting a youth fellowship to teaching Sunday School classes. Every believer working together is required for a local church to function as God intended. God gifts and empowers us to serve and multiplies our efforts in many ways.
St John’s has a proud history or local service since 1879. Our service to our church community and beyond continues in 2019 through our aged care service at New Horizons, St John’s Preschool, BLAST after school children’s club, Anchor Youth, Lean English ESL classes, Community advocacy in partnership with Ryde Council, Ping Pong, NRG Holiday Program, Anglicare partnership and much more.
“Based on the gift they have received, everyone should use it to serve others, as good managers of the varied grace of God. … If anyone serves, his service should be from the strength God provides, so that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him belong the glory and thepower forever and ever.”
1 Peter 4:10-11
