The Christian life is all about discipleship, that is, learning to be a disciple or follower of Jesus Christ. A disciple is simply a student of Jesus. Like any student a disciple of Jesus learns how to follow Christ by studying his Word – the Bible – and practicing what a disciple looks like which is not that dissimilar from a how a tradesperson learns how to learn his or her trade. Just as a bricklayer learns how to be a bricklayer by doing it, so does a Christian learn how to be one by simply doing it!
To help members be disciples of Christ, St John’s offers various learning opportunities. They include Sermon Series, Rector’s Notes, Life Groups and opportunities to get involved in mission and outreach ministries in the life of the parish.
