Helping others

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.

Pastoral care

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.
