If you were a bird, looking down on Nillumbik Shire, how would you picture our church? Do you automatically think of a red brick building?
When I think of our church, I think of you. I think of the places you are during the week, not in a weird stalker way ? but in a way which represents that we are God’s people on mission 24/7 and only a few hours of that a week are spent together in a red brick building, beautiful, though it is.
We are God’s people; ambassadors of heaven and bringers of the good news of Jesus; even on our ‘bad’ days, this is what God says about who we are.
Within St John’s we have numbers of Jesus-loving, spirit-led faith communities serving our local neighbourhood.
We believe God is always active amongst us and He invites us to partner with Him in making Jesus known both at home and abroad. It is our joy, as a church to serve the people in our neighbourhood, following the example of Jesus and living the love of God to others.
