St Johns East Malvern


Saint John’s Finch Street stands at the heart of the East Malvern community. The iconic and newly restored sandstone church is home to a welcoming and hospitable community committed to the worship of God in beauty and holiness in the classical Anglican tradition as well as loving and joyful outreach as disciples of Jesus Christ. Saint John’s strives to be a centre of excellence for traditional Anglican choral music and has one of the finest Anglican parish choirs in Melbourne. Service to the community is at the core of our mission and we are proud to operate a long-running community lunch, St Jack’s, every Friday along with many other opportunities for outreach. We are a place where Christian faith, learning and service are nurtured and encouraged – and hope you are able to join us soon. All are welcome!
