It’s time to rethink our Vision
St John’s Diamond Creek has been serving our local community for over 150 years. Over that time, the good news about Jesus has remained unchanged:
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures1 Corinthians 15:3-4
This is still good news for our community! We want to share it and grow together as followers of Jesus.
While our message remains unchanged our context has changed dramatically in the past 150 years, and rapidly in recent years. Two years of Covid and lockdowns have presented us with new challenges and impacted the way we do ministry. As a church we need to constantly envision the best way to share the good news of Jesus for our current context and communities.
Know Jesus. Make Jesus Known.
Reconnect and build a multiethnic and intergenerational network of congregations, Life Groups and mission initiatives for Diamond Creek and the Northern Suburbs
Apply the bible to every part of life,
Serve God and one another,
Share Jesus in word and action, locally and globally,
Equip leaders from all generations.
This Vision for our Church won’t just happen and will need to be underpinned by strategic objectives, which the Staff team will work on through 2023 and beyond.
