Welcome to St John’s Anglican Church in Newcastle’s leafy suburb of Cooks Hill. We are the oldest church in Newcastle and still very much alive and thriving! Please join us!

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.

What happens at St John’s?

Our three Sunday services offer traditional all age, informal and contemporary family worship.

We meet for playgroup, youth groups, Bible studies, and social catch-ups during the week. Through these things, we want to build a passionate community that lives the way that Jesus Christ wants us to.

St John’s is a very popular church for weddings, with its gorgeous sandstone look, beautiful red carpet, and impressive timber beams.

It’s a beautiful church to worship in and a great place to belong and be part of a community.
