Parish Vision and Mission Day
Saturday September 14
Concerned about the way St Johns is heading?  Want to ensure your St Johns is a wonderful place of worship, encounter and beacon of the Gospel in Burlington for the decades to come?  Then the “Parish Vision and Mission Day” here at St John's is for you.  Led by Dr. Emily Hill, the diocesan parish development missioner, this will be your opportunity to contribute to the direction St Johns will be going now and for the years to come.  Lunch provided of course!


Parish Day Retreat
Saturday October 12

Tired from all that excellent visioning and missioning?  Need space to ‘kick back’ and listen for that still small voice so often unheard in the din of our busy lives?  Then the “Parish Day Retreat” at St George Lowville is for you.  Led by Rev. Monica Romig Green, Assistant Curate at our Christ's Church Cathedral.  Monica will lead us as we reflect on “A Common Thread?  The intertwining of God Story with Ours”, with ample opportunity to listen, reflect, pray, relax and just ‘be’.  Lunch provided of course!


Baby Hats
Attention all St. John’s knitters. OTMH or Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital are in need of knitted neo natal hats or newborn hats. They can be any colour you wish. Please let Judi Oates know if you are able to help in this wonderful outreach project. When we have a collection, they will be blessed and sent on their way.


Be a St John’s Giant
After years of dedicated and faithful service, from vestry 2025 Linda and Peter will be passing on the duty of Rector’s and People’s Warden. Please pray that members of our congregation will be called to be St. John’s Wardens in 2025 and beyond. To consider: “Am I called to be a warden?” If you feel God calling you to this critical ministry, please speak with Revd Stewart.

There are many ministries to share. There are many members which make up the body of Christ.
         Statement of Faith
We believe in God above us, maker and sustainer of all life, of sun and moon, of water and earth, of male and female.  We believe in God beside us, Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, born of a woman, servant of the poor, tortured and nailed to a tree.  A man of sorrows, he died forsaken.  He descended into the earth, to the place of death.  On the third day he rose from the tomb.  He ascended into heaven to be everywhere present and his Kingdom will come on Earth.  We believe in God within us, the Holy Spirit of Pentecostal fire, life-giving breath of the church, Spirit of resurrection and eternal life.  Amen.
  • Altar Guild
A devoted group that sets up the altar for services and beautifies the church with flowers and other seasonal settings. A wonderful way to make use of your creative talents. If you wish to donate towards the altar flowers in the church in memory of a loved one or in celebration of an anniversary, please contact Phyllis Prescott or email the office.
  • Readers, Servers & Chalice Bearers
These are important ministries, both practical and symbolic, which enhance the worship of the whole congregation.  On Sundays, one reader reads the scripture and another reads the Prayers of the People. Servers assist the priest at the altar. Chalice Bearers participate in the sharing of communion. Your participation is welcome for one Sunday or as part of a regular schedule, for any level of committment that speaks to you. If you are interested in serving God and our community in any of these roles, please speak to one of the wardens or email the office.


  • Greeters
This Sunday morning ministry is important because it sets the tone for each service. Greeters represent the St. John's community as they welcome the congregation into the church one by one, hand out bulletins, and direct newcomers. Your participation is welcome or one Sunday or many, as the spirit calls you. If you are interested in joining the greeters team, please speak to one of the wardens or email the office.
  • Coffee Hour Hosts
Each Sunday, after church, the congregation gathers in the parish hall to share drinks and snacks and enjoy lively conversation. Two volunteers slip out of church a few minutes early to put the kettle on and make sure this social time is ready and inviting. Newcomers are always welcome.  If you are interested in joining the coffee hour hosts, please speak to one of the wardens or email the office. 
  • MAP Teams
In September 2022, the congregation gathered to discuss our Mission Action Plan. This was a short-term planning session to gather ideas for upcoming activities at St. John's. After the planning sessions, three small teams were formed. Over the past year, these teams have championed the ideas that the congregation was most excited about. Actions include restarting special events which Covid interrupted, creating new special events, exploring new worship music, and fostering our relationships with neighbouring churches. If you would like to volunteer, but you're not sure what you would like to do, contact the office about the MAP Teams and we'll find something that suits you!


  • Music Ministry: Organist - Clement Ng
Choral music is sung by a dedicated group of individuals. If you can carry a tune, have enthusiasm for singing, and a desire to have fun, contact Deborah Warner or Clement Ng during church, or email the office.
