Here at St John’s we have a huge amount of children & youth work for you and your family to get involved with! We believe that children & young people are just as important a part of the church family as anyone else. We want to see the children & young people at St John’s creating and building their own personal relationship with God. We do this in a number of fun and creative ways in groups throughout the week.

The Children, Youth & Families work here is headed up by Barbara Lang (Children and Families Worker) & Barbara Wilson (Associate Minister), you can find out more about them on our staff page. There are also a huge number of dedicated and passionate volunteers at St John’s that are part of the team, and we’re very grateful to all of them!
