What is St John’s all about?

St John’s, Cooks Hill is the spiritual home for a growing 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.
