What is St John’s all about?
St John’s, Cooks Hill is the spiritual home for a growing and vibrant community of people drawn from all across Newcastle NSW. We are from all ages and walks of life. We have in common a desire to be disciples of Jesus Christ. We want to learn more about him, we want to trust his way of living more and more. Because of this, we seek to be a church Newcastle finds open and welcoming.
What happens at St John’s?
Our three Sunday services offer traditional, informal and modern worship. Church isn’t just on a Sunday… throughout the week we meet for playgroup, youth groups, Bible studies, surfing, football and social catch-ups. Through these things we want to build a community in the way that Jesus Christ wants us to live. St John’s is a very popular church for weddings, with its gorgeous sandstone look, beautiful red carpet, and impressive timber beams. But it’s not just a beautiful Newcastle church to worship in – it’s also a great place to belong and be part of a community.
