Look out for the magnificent spire housing the carillon bells which call the congregation to services on Sunday mornings. For those who have never been to a church before, St. John's Toorak is the perfect place to attend a communion service to see what is it all about. The people running the church as well as the churchgoers are the utmost friendly toward newcomers.
Stepping through the wooden double doors, a long nave greets the eye drawing its gaze toward the altar wherein the priests conduct their weekly ceremonies.

The organ is one of the reasons why it is a good idea to attend a Sunday service. During school terms, a professional choir leads the congregation under the masterful direction of Christopher Cook. St. John's Toorak has a very strong musical element entrenched within their services.
After the service, a light morning tea is offered where you can learn more about the church. St. John's Toorak is also a child-friendly church with special children's addresses during the 10am Sunday Mass as well as a Sunday school program.
