The latest from… Peter’s Pen


  • Updated on 28 November 2020

  • All face to face worship services (including Messy Church) have been cancelled until further notice to comply with the government decision to close all places of worship in an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

  • However, we are continuing to conduct and record worship services.

  • Links to recorded worship services can be found on our Worship with us page.

  • For those with young children who would just like to watch “The Early Word” section of the service, links to these can be found on our Children and Families page.

  • There is a link to World Council of Churches Ecumenical Prayer Cycle on the About Us page.

  • The Synod website has lots of helpful COVID19 resources and stories – scroll to the bottom of the front page to find these.

  • The St John’s Op Shop and Emergency Relief will be both closed until further notice due to recommendations about containing the spread of the coronavirus. Any changes will be updated here.

  • The main entrance to the St John’s car park is from Mt Alexander Road just north of the house next to the church.

Upcoming face to face events will updated here when they recommence.

St John’s Essendon acknowledges the traditional custodians of this land, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, and we pay our respects to their elders, past, present and emerging.
