About St John’s

Find out more about who we are and what we do

A part of the Camden community since 1849.

Our church is a community which desires to be a place where we belong, believe and become all that Jesus wants us to be. We come from different walks of life, with different backgrounds and histories, but the thing that unifies us is being compelled by Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection.


While there are no prerequisites to belong at our church, we’re more than a social club. Our mission is for everyone to hear the unparalleled message of Jesus and respond with belief and trust. And in turn, we believe that through believing in Jesus, we will be transformed into the people he created us to be: courageous, compassionate, generous, and merciful.


We are all a work in progress. We don’t claim to be perfect, and we don’t always get things right. But we do seek to humbly listen to Jesus through his words and align our lives to his teaching.


“We’d love for you to come along!”
