St Johns Anglican Church Darlinghurst

St John's an Anglican Church serving Jesus for the people of East Sydney: Darlinghurst, Woolloomooloo, Potts Point, Rushcutter's Bay, Elizabeth Bay and Kings Cross. About 30,000 people live in this area with weekend visitors increasing this to over 100,000.

Within a short walk you move from the 3rd wealthiest to the 5th poorest localities in Sydney. The Cross is an entertainment area with major hotels catering for international tourists. People who come or visit this church include backpackers, sailors, the wealthy, the elderly and influential, the homeless and the marginalised people, and the emotionally damaged. In response to this we have a wide range of innovative ministries.

The church here is a diverse body of people united in God's love made known in Jesus' death. At St. John's our belief and discipleship in Jesus are reflected in a wide range of activities.
