Rich in faith, Rich in people, Rich in hope.

Ministry & Programs

For better than 100 years, the congregation of St. John the Baptist has been growing, training, shaping and sending out ministers into God’s vineyard called North Sydney. They lived to serve and loved to serve our God. Thankfully, today is no different! We are still God’s ministers and we are still faithful.

We believe our church and our community need more, not less leaders and lovers of God. We support leadership development in all people and try to enable all to work as ministers of God’s goodness. Together we provide resources and opportunities for us and the next generation of good and faithful servants to rise up and thrive.

  • Weekly Bible Study – Wednesday mornings  (10am to 12pm)
  • Education for Ministry (EFM)

    EFM is a wonderfully comprehensive program of Theological Education for lay people interested in growing in their knowledge of scripture, tradition, history and liturgy. Participants use their own life experience as a base from which to explore all these area of study. Classes are small (usually 6 to 10 people), are led by trained mentors, and the group meets weekly.
