AGED CARE MINISTRY SERVICES
For many years, St John’s conducted worship services at Roden Cutler Retirement Home and Lady Gowrie Nursing Home in Gordon. Both of those homes closed mid-2017 for major refurbishment and all residents were required to find new accommodation. At the end of this lengthy project, we expect to resume services.
