The Magdalene Centre
Founded by the parishes of St John’s, St Peter’s Cathedral and St Mary Magdalene’s, the Magdalene Centre provides support, training and emergency provisions for needy and marginalised families in the city. St John’s parishioners continue to contribute through fundraising and as volunteers at the Centre and on the Board.
St John’s hospital visitors regularly visit Anglican and other patients by request in the nearby St Andrew’s Hospital . Arrangements can be made for a priest to bring communion. Training in hospital visits is available for interested parishioners.
Australian Board of Missions
St John’s raises funds toward the expenses of Bishop James Leftwich, Aboriginal Bishop of Australia. He is based in Cairns, but travels Australia-wide ministering to Aboriginal people. The ABM Dinner is the main fund-raising event.
