We at St John’s have a commitment to the nurturing and support of families. With this in mind, we offer a weekly playgroup program for toddlers and their parents/grandparents/carers called “MAINLY MUSIC”. This is a program of Christian based music and actions for parents interacting with their small children from babies up to about 3 and a half. It involves a 30 minute mixture of music, movement, rhymes and action. This is followed by morning tea, which is provided by St John’s, a time of play for the children and a time of fellowship for all. Our program is held on Friday mornings and the cost is $4 per family per session. DUE TO POPULARITY OF OUR PROGRAM A WAITING LIST APPLIES....For more information, contact Jill Crane on (07) 4124 5652.

Every second Saturday, men from the parish gather at 7am for a hearty barbecue breakfast at the Parish Hall. This provides an ideal opportunity to get to know one another better in a social atmosphere and to take part in a short Bible Study. Adult men of all ages are welcome.


These events are held four times a year on Saturday mornings at a range of cafe venues around Hervey Bay. Guest speakers are invited to address the gathering, generally on subjects of particular interest to Christian women of all ages.

The breakfasts provide the perfect opportunity to meet socially while learning valuable information on a host of stimulating subjects.

CURSILLO (a Spanish for Short Course) is a worldwide movement within many Christian churches. Cursillo is a method that helps us to consciously live in God’s grace and to bring into our daily lives, the feeling of community we can share as Christians. A 3 day Cursillo weekend is the way to join the movement, and these are held annually.
