St John's and St Paul's share a priest, deacon, licensed preacher and worship leader for worship, Bible Study and pastoral care.  This arrangement has been working well for the past year or so and meets the needs to two congregations with active ministry to their respective communities.  St John's is the larger of the two parishes and receives funds from St Paul's to cover clergy expenses.
