St. John’s Toorak understands that we are all children of God. We are committed to loving and serving everyone, not just those that are active in our parish. That love and service is unconditional. To support this love, St. John’s is committed to ensuring a safe environment for every child. We have a zero tolerance of any behaviours that may or will harm children.
