WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PRESERVE AND MAINTAIN THE HISTORIC ST JOHN'S PRECINCT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

St John’s Anglican church (1841) dates back to the earliest days of European settlement. Its historic precinct is an oasis of quiet and beauty in the heart of our Nation's capital. 

For over 170 years St John’s parishioners and others have had the privilege of preserving the fabric and furnishings of the heritage church.‚Äč Since its listing on the ACT Heritage Register in 2004 significant work has been undertaken on the foundations, water management, stained glass windows, lighting, replacing crumbling stonework and general maintenance.

From July to October 2019 the 1960 asbestos roof tiles on the church were replaced with Welsh slate costing nearly $400,000. Further conservation work is beyond the capacity of the congregation at this time. 

We invite donors who have benefited from the foresight and selfless dedication of others to continue the conservation of the church and its precinct, which includes the churchyard, schoolhouse and landscape. This will enable it to remain a vibrant and active centre for worship and community and will allow future generations to engage with Canberra’s continuing history.
