Are you in our Parent Facebook group?

G’day Parents, If you have a Facebook account, I recommend joining a group that is attached to our church Facebook page called ‘St John’s Parents’. Some of what we post here is re-posted there but the main reason to join that group is the possibility of discussion and parents sharing tips and resources with each other. Last year there were several posts from other parents that we directly applied in our family to great effect. Check it out. Also, You…

Youth Life Groups have started

G’day Parents, Our Youth Life Groups have either started this week or will start next week. As is expected, it’s been a bit of a juggling act with time slots and leaders but we think we’ve got three pretty great groups starting out this year. There is still plenty of time to join a group so I thought I’d post the basics here for you to see. There are two groups meeting on Tuesday nights (at separate locations), one boys…

Friend discount for Camp Crave

  G’day parents, Just wanted to announce that from today onward we are offering 20% off the price of Camp Crave for anyone who is from outside St John’s. I’ve been encouraging youth to invite these types of people (as well as those who already are part of our church): A friend who’s not a Christian but has expressed interest in talking about Christianity. A friend from another church that has no youth camp of their own. A friend from…

Camp Crave – Time to register, seriously!

G’day parents, I’ve written about Camp Crave before here. We’re getting close now and we don’t have enough registrations to go ahead. This has been the case every year at this time, then we get a bunch of registrations. My request is that, if you’ve got youth coming, that you register them today and help me sleep better at night 😉 Click here to register. If they’re not registered but might come, I highly recommend that you follow that rabbit all…

Youth Unite Tonight + Life Groups and Trivia

G’day Parents, I’ve posted about Youth Unite before but it’s on tonight so thought I’d mention it one last time. Life Groups. If you’ve registered for a group then it’s likely that you’ve heard from me or a leader already. If not, please drop me an email (kirk@stjohnsdc.org.au). Is it too late to join a group? Never! Just let us know you’re keen and we’ll see what we can do. Trivia! At 5pm on Sundays (school and public holidays excluded)…

Coming to Camp Crave? Please register

G’day Parents, This coming Sunday the Camp Crave leaders will be gathering to plan the camp. At this stage, still a few weeks out, we do not have enough registrations for the camp to go ahead. I’m writing to request that IF you know your youth are coming to camp, could you please register them this week? That way when we start planning, we know the camp is going ahead and have a snapshot of who will be attending. Obviously…

Life Groups Update

G’day parents, This Thursday night we will meet as a leadership team and lock in the life group allocations for this year. Soon after that you will hear from group leaders about your kid/s’ first group meeting and related details. As always, there were no times/locations that perfectly suit everyone. None-the-less we have done our best to run groups at times where the most possible people can attend every week. We are keen to work with families to make the…
