At St John’s we take our mission as a parish very seriously and try to bring others to a saving relationship with God in Jesus Christ. We also take seriously our call to support the mission of the Church beyond our parish.
At St Johns we pledge that at least 10 – 12% of our income is used to help the wider mission work of the church as well as those in need of special assistance.
