Is creche or childcare available?
We provide creche (infants through two-year-olds) for all Sunday morning services. Creche is available after the children’s talk at the 9am service. It is located in the Maheno Room in the Bulimba Anglican Center adjacent to the church building.
Where do I enroll my children in Children’s Church? What time is Children’s Church?

What about adult Christian Discipleship?
Please visit the adults section to see the ways in which we engage with adults within St John the Baptist.

How do I become a member at St John the Baptist? How do I transfer my records?
If you are coming to us from an Anglican background, you can call Sue on 3399 1508 and ask her to contact your previous church to transfer your membership. If you come from a tradition other than Anglican, Catholic, or Orthodox, we request that you speak to Reverend John Milburn about attending our Confirmation classes.
I used to sing in the choir/play a musical instrument, but I’m not a trained or professional. Could I be involved in the music team here?
We would love to have you be involved in our music team here at St John the Baptist. There is a growing choir at the 9am and all are welcome to come along and join in.
How do I get involved at St John the Baptist?

You might have noticed that members of St John the Baptist wear name tags; a form is available in the back of the church for you and your family. Feel free to fill in your name and we will order you a name tag. Cost for name tags are $10.
