Our heart

 St John’s Youth exists to see young people encounter God and equipped to be life-long disciples in loving community growing in relationship, character and gifting, fully integrated into church, with a heart for mission.


St John’s Youth Ministry is made up of Pathfinders (school years 7-9), Authentic (school years 10-13) and Youth Socials (school years 7-13).

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil, cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
— Romans 12:9-13
