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.
Funding was difficult and the Village continued to draw upon the generosity of the community. Additional land was acquired with the purpose of expanding the number of units to make a truly viable facility.
With compassion and perseverance, the Village has continued to grow to over 160 Independent Living Units it has today.
St. John's Village came about through a dream of providing accommodation, today it is dream accommodation for its many residents – “The perfect place to Live”.
