As part of St. John's Norway's commitment to its community, the church premises are made available to a number of community groups.
|Scouting: According to the original 35th Toronto Scouting Group charter, Scouting began at St. John's in 1912. A second charter was granted in 1948 to the 37th Toronto, also at St. John's. The 90th Anniversary Celebration was on February 23, 2003 at the church. The group operates five sections: Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers. The groups meet at the Church and up the street at Norway Public School.|
