The Village community facilities complement the residents’ units providing areas for relaxing and socialising. The Community Building is designed with several purpose-built rooms including a library which is well stocked with a large range of titles along with Audio books, games and puzzles and a collection of DVD’s. The main hall is great for gatherings ranging from social events, to exercise, to a Fellowship Service on Sundays. The billiard table and carpet bowls provide opportunities for friendly competition.
In the Apartment area is a second library and a comfortable area for relaxing with family and friends. The Apartment Dining Room services the Apartment residents along with any Independent Living Unit residents who are looking for a cooked meal. The Dining Room also hosts a special menu on Monday evenings and themed dinners throughout the year. These events are open to all residents.

“The emergency call system has given me great sense of security”.
Security is a great concern in today’s society – the 24 hour emergency call system, together with security doors, smoke detectors, CCTV cameras and personal surveillance by our professional staff is very reassuring for residents and their families.
“I feel so much safer at St. John’s”.
Many residents gain peace of mind knowing their home is safe and maintained while they take extended time out to travel Australia or overseas.
“Moving made me take stock of the things I like doing”.
The residents’ Workshop is a place for all those handy people to meet; whether to mend a chair, make wooden toys, join in a team project or prepare their car, boat or caravan for a holiday.
Each unit has a front and rear garden area that residents may treat as their own. In addition, community garden beds are available for residents who love getting outside with nature to grow flowers or vegetables.
“We enjoy the Christian fellowship.”
The caring environment of St. John’s is based on Christian values. For those who wish to attend, a Fellowship group meeting is held at the Village on Sundays.
"We’ve gained so much peace of mind at St. John’s.”

Located on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula at Somerville, the Village provides both Independent Living Units and Serviced Apartments set within a garden environment, all maintained by St. John’s friendly staff.
Our aim is to ensure your retirement is a carefree experience – a time to enjoy life and increase your independence.
“I go out more often now with the friends I’ve made here”.
Many residents take the opportunities made available for social outings and on-site activities. Residents are welcome to participate as much or as little as they choose.
“I wish we had moved here sooner.”
A common sentiment among residents is that they wish they had moved to the Village earlier. Some leave it too late to enjoy the full benefits of living in a retirement community. The sooner you make the move to St. John’s, the sooner you will experience the great benefits.
