For The Cafe it's are rare public performance and an even rarer one in a church. Founder, Tony Blackhouse is internationally recognised for his committment and expertise in gospel music.
The Church is one of sydneys
oldest and most interesting. Its common to see a judge and a
homeless person kneeling side by side at the altar rail. St
Johns is also one of sydney's most progressive local
churches, with a great deal of its energy going into work
with Darlinghurst homeless, and refugees.
