St John’s Cathedral is home to a community which seeks to bring the best of Anglican tradition into dialogue with the issues and needs of our day.

We strive for open-minded conversation, seek to practice inclusion, and reflect on how we might see our beliefs put into action. We want this to be a place where people are encouraged to seek God and progress their own spiritual journeys.

The Cathedral itself, a renowned Brisbane landmark, serves as a magnet, where diverse people gather to worship, celebrate, seek solace, converse and learn.

Community of the Way is a newly-established Intentional community of young adults who seek to follow the way of Jesus with prayerful hearts, enquiring minds, and compassionate lives.

People who join Community of The Way are given space to live an intentional life: purposefully reflecting on the connections between church, work, study and faith; exploring life’s questions within a safe and supportive environment; training in community engagement; and engaging with the local community for justice.

Based at St Francis College, Milton, the Community is part of the Anglican Church of Southern Queensland. Mission Chaplain of St Francis College, and Chaplain to the Community of the Way, the Rev’d Jazz Dow is responsible for facilitating the building of this Intentional Community, a place where young people aged 18-30 will build social and spiritual ties through spending time together in prayer, theological enquiry and serving the community while they go about their day-to-day lives.

We can help Community of The Way by funding subsidies for residential participants, so that young adult Anglicans might have the opportunity to develop their faith in this supportive environment. Residential places cost $100 per week.

Can we give at least $1,000 to support young Anglicans as resident members of Community of The Way?

+ ANNUAL MEETING Sunday 24th February
Notice is hereby given that the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Cathedral Congregation will resume on Sunday 24th February at 11.15am in the Darnell Room. The Agenda for the meeting will be advertised on the Cathedral doors from mid-February.

Sunday 17th February, 3.30pm

Discovering that we are made out of love by Love for love …
A gentle and open process for those seeking:
• Baptism
• Confirmation
• Reaffirmation
• A deeper knowledge of God.

What is the process?
The Christian faith is a way of life. Entering into a way of life requires reflection. Christians are people who seek to live out the way of love. We seek to follow Jesus who, in his own life, demonstrated that we were made by God, who is love, for love. God’s love gives us the energy to love in turn. Since we are made for love, we each have a purpose. The Journey exists to enable people to discover what this truth means for them.

Who is The Journey for?
• those who want to take stock of their lives using a spiritual focus;
• those considering baptism for themselves or for their children;
• those considering confirmation;
• those who want to become an Anglican;
• those wanting to discern some future direction for their life;
• those interested in unpacking the faith.

Is it for me?
We offer an enquiry session – God’s Story, Your Story, My Story – that allows people to ask just that question and begin to seek an answer for themselves. The next Enquiry day is Sunday 17th February, 3.30pm in the Darnell Room, St Martin’s House at St John’s Cathedral.
