Amnesty International

Once a month, after the services we have a letter writing session for Amnesty International.  Neridah Byrne, our Amnesty representatives, provides us with information and suggestions of letters to write so that we can do our small part in an effort to bring the freedom we enjoy to others. We have an Amnesty International candle which is lit during the services to help remind us that “it is better to light a candle than curse the dark”. In the Amnesty corner there are always pamphlets about the latest issues, to keep us up to date.

The Op Shop is held on the first Saturday of every month Good quality used clothes and goods are always welcome.
Any enquiries to Bev Bingham Or e-mail to: office@stjohnsdeewhy.org.au

Environment

St John’s is committed to care and respect for the environment as God’s creation. Projects such as our Solar Panel Array and Recycling Program are practical signs of this. There are containers at the back of the church for the general public to place items for recycling, such as used printer cartridges and computer consumables, old spectacles, used stamps, used batteries, etc.
