Historical Documents

 

Below are links to pdfs of some of our key historical records including

  • Annual reports
  • Issues of the parish magazine "The Messenger"
  • Histories of St Johns and people and organisations associated with the parish

St John's War Dead  An account of members of the Congregation who lost their lives in wars.

ANNUAL REPORTS - These are all the annual reports we can find either at the Church itself or at Alexander Turnbull Library. If you have one that we do not list we would very much like to have a copy (except for 1989-2001 which we have yet to upload)..
