History

 

It started as a dream by members of the local Presbyterian Church back in the 1970’s - the creation of a facility to provide accommodation for older members of the community.

The passion and drive of those Church members and the local community led to funds being raised, land being purchased and in 1979 the initial 4 units being designed for construction.

​Our first resident moved into the Village in May 1983 with construction happening all around.

At the same time planning was well underway for the Community Centre that was officially opened in September 1984.

St. John's Village was taking shape.

Live-in managers were appointed, and by November of 1984 a Residents committee had been formed to co-ordinate activities and events.

​Additional land was acquired, and the Village continued to grow.

The St. John’s Community now boasts over 140 Independent Living Units, 20 Serviced Apartments and Resident facilities including our State-of-the-Art Activity Centre.

​St. John's Village came about through a dream of providing accommodation, with care, compassion and community and we strive to continue to be – “The Perfect Place to Live”.
