Welcome to St John’s Essendon and thanks for visiting our website. I am Peter Gador-Whyte, the Minister of this warm and diverse community here in Essendon.
Our congregation worships in this beautiful old church, which for over 160 years has been a place of prayer, of music and silence where people have been sustained and challenged by the transforming love of God.
We aim to be a vibrant, Christian community, active in building one another up in faith and love and sustained in the hope given to us in Jesus Christ. We are a multi-cultural congregation enriched by the wide variety of cultures represented among us, and committed to working for justice, peace and reconciliation.
On Sundays at 8.30am we gather for Holy Communion in the Chapel followed by a cuppa in the hall. At 10am another part of our community gather to worship supported by a wonderful pipe organ, and twice a month by a fantastic Samoan Choir
We would like you to be part of our community as we seek to witness to the love of God made known in Jesus Christ.
You may like to attend worship on Sunday, or be part of a number of the small groups that function in our midst and you would be welcome in any capacity.
Minister: Rev Peter Gador-Whyte
