Arcus Fellowship was formed in 2014 as a collaborative effort to bring together the youth and young adults from St. John’s and its sister parishes. Originating as a small multi-church youth group, the fellowship has greatly expanded over the years by incorporating elements of spirituality and fun in every occasion. Arcus aims to create a safe and open space for everyone to make new friendships, deepen existing friendships, and grow together as brothers and sisters in Christ. It is an opportunity to build bridges and form a community amongst the churches through engaging and relevant events. Arcus activities include Christmas and All Hallows get togethers, Shrove Tuesday pancake dinner, board games nights, and summer trips to Wonderland. They welcome you to join them for fun, games, worship, and lots of food!
PHILEI <>< FELLOWSHIP
Philei <>< is a fellowship group consisting of members with ages ranging from upper high school to young working professionals. The fellowship name comes from a combination of the Greek word “Philia” for friendship, and the Jesus Fish represented by the symbol <><. Together, it is also a play on the ever-popular McDonalds Filet-o-Fish burger. The fellowship holds bi-weekly topical bible studies and also gathers for Theology On Pop, which is a monthly group discussion on various topics of interest. Occasionally, the Philei <>< will also organize fellowship retreats and social get-togethers, going to places such as Center Island and Woodbine Beach. They are a vibrant group of motivated individuals who are always looking forward to welcoming new members!

ST. JOHN’S YOUTH GROUP
At St. John’s we are committed to the next generation to grow in the love and grace of Jesus and to feel encouraged in their every-day relationship with Him. Our vision as a community is to walk alongside parents to provide youth with a safe community where they can grow, question, and learn about what it means to love God with everything they are, and to love their neighbours as themselves.
If you are between the ages of 13-18, then this is for you! St John’s youth group meets once a month to eat food, play games, and learn about life from a Christian perspective. Teens from all backgrounds are welcome to join! For more information please contact Pastor Ginnie Wong.
