At St. John’s we strongly believe in serving and supporting the community. As a result, in addition to weekly worship, a major part of our Christian ministry includes volunteerism and outreach activities. In the past we have supported causes in London and around the world touching on issues including poverty, social justice, children’s issues and community health.
We have over 30 different groups in our church that allow you to get involved in the community and to volunteer your time towards activities ranging from community outreach, participation in worship, and community fellowship. All are welcome to join in our volunteer and outreach activities. Note that some volunteer groups are parish-based and may require attendance at worship or membership in the congregation.
If you are a high school student, we will sign off on your 40 hours of community service.
