One aspect key to the unique identity of
Children’s Work: In both Sunday School and Pathfinder Groups the children are encouraged to use the arts as a response to their growing faith. Pathfinders often contribute to celebration services and frequently use the visual arts as a spontaneous response to a service. There is an extremely active Sunday school for primary age children and families are made very welcome at St John's.
Café Evenings: These are informal evening presentations where a theme such as ‘journeys and journeying’ is explored through live music, words, images and dance. The setting is informal with light refreshments and often involves an interactive element such as a painting wall.
In addition to the above, a diverse range of art activity is an ongoing part of the fabric of St John's. Dramas are often used in services such as the Environment and Gift Day services. Banners, both traditional and non-traditional, add a visual layer to our worship and workshop days frequently use the arts as a tool for considering and developing our relationship with God. At St John's we believe that the buzz of creativity is a direct reflection of our creator God , making the arts such an apt way to communicate and express our faith.
