St John’s Anglican Church Newcastle


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 with regular services, small groups, a playgroup, an ecocare group, and a youth group. 

Join us for a traditional service (in person and streamed via Facebook) at 9.30am on Sundays.

We also hold a 5pm Sunday contemporary service (in the hall) that we would love to welcome you to.

Please contact if you have any questions. Our Facebook page (including streaming) is:  St. John’s Facebook Page

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.
