Train

St John’s North Ryde is keen to partner with you in the next steps of your training.
Located in the Macquarie Park / North Ryde Growth corridor, you will have the opportunity to research, learn and reflect on reaching a rapidly changing suburb with the great news of Jesus.

We are currently connecting with around 2-3 new families per week and would love to pray and partner with you as we endeavour to make disciples of Jesus.

Over the last 10 years the parish has trained around 20 student ministers, MTS and year 13 students.
Training occurs in relationship with full time staff and other trainees. We meet on Sundays at 3pm for regular training / staff meeting.

There are a number of unique ministries at St John’s:
BLAST, our Friday kids after school club with 90 attending from 5 different local schools
ONSITE Christian preschool with dedicated missional staff and 90 families – most from families with limited Christian connection
NRG – Mid year holiday kids club with over 300 attending
Summerfest – Annual NTE Mission in partnership with Macquarie University CU

We have also adopted a ‘purpose driven’ hybrid model where 11 teams (paid and unpaid led) endeavour to work together for God’s glory within our church and mission community.

We include training in Elvanto, Proclaim, Adwords, WordPress, Desktop Publishing to extend ministry connection.

Our commitment to training includes paying trainees at the standard diocesan rates along with reimbursing for additional ministry training expenses.

St John’s is a 25 minute drive from Moore College & SMBC and is on the door step of Morling College. Heaps of parking onsite and in the adjacent car parks. The church door step has regular buses to the city, Top Ryde, Chatswood and Macquarie Centre. The train station is 10 mins walk away.

We would love to talk to you further about how we can partner together in helping you to be the man or woman who can prepare and equip the saints for service.

Yours in Christ,

John & Kylie Chappell – 0403 812 782
