bible study Suppertime Bible Study:
Mondays in Room 16 at the Conservatory, 5:30pm.

This very active group welcomes all, and encourages folks to enrich their faith and spiritual journey in this ever-changing world. Books, theologians, visual aids and bible studies all bring a better understanding of our faith. Questions, doubts, different points of view, and social gatherings define our time together. Call or email the minister for more information.



Spring Retreat:
Saturday March 9 from 9:30am - 3:30pm at the Seton Spirituality Centre, Terence Bay, NS.

Come away from the noise and busy-ness of the city for a day of rest and renewal by the ocean. You can start your retreat early with an overnight stay at the centre Friday night and a hearty breakfast Saturday morning. There will be plenty of opportunities for programmed and unprogrammed time, time alone and time with others, quiet time as well as time for conversation and song.
For more details on these and other programs, please email the Minister of Faith Formation.


lent Looking Forward to Lent.
There are plenty of opportunities at St. John’s United to deepen your faith over the six weeks leading up to Easter. Here’s a sample:

Because of This I Rejoice - Lenten Bible Study Series: Our regular Monday night Bible Study group will be taking on a special six-week program for Lent. We’ll be “Reading Philippians During Lent” using the 2018 book by Max O. Vincent. If you’ve been wanting to try Bible Study but didn’t want a long commitment, this is a wonderful opportunity to join us for some fellowship and wonderful conversation.

Drop-In Lenten Prayer Group - Sunday Mornings during Lent: The three traditional spiritual practices associated with Lent are fasting, almsgiving and prayer. Every Sunday morning during the season of Lent (March 10 through April 14), there will be a separate room available on the upper floor of the Conservatory from 9:45 - 10:15am for prayer or meditation. Candles, Bibles, quiet music and prompts will be available in addition to a different prayer station each week featuring an optional prayer practice to try.

The Poetry of Lent - a Lenten Companion to Mary Oliver’s Devotions: If you’re not ready for a full-on Bible immersion experience but are interested in starting a devotional practice for Lent, consider taking part in our less-structured but equally meaningful Lenten poetry experience. This wonderful resource from the SALT project promises “bite-sized meditations on key Lenten themes” and “everyday practices for individuals and families.” We’ll have opportunities to meet in person and online, or you can simply use the guide to prompt your own personal journey at home.

Please let Lesley know if you would like more information about these opportunities to deepen your spiritual practice this Lent.


St. John's Book Club. It’s a “group of characters” who enjoy discussing a “group of characters”. If you like to read a wide variety of books on every topic imaginable, then this is the club for you. The St. John’s Book Club meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month from September to June (except for December) in Room 15 of the Maritime Conservatory.
St John's Book Club A thoroughly democratic book club!

February – Love and Ruin by Paula McLain
March – Forgiveness: A Gift From My Grandparents by Mark Sakamoto
April – The Green Road by Anne Enright
