Worship at St. John’s
Worship is the heart of the church’s life and mission. In worship we return to the wellsprings of the faith and are engaged in communion with the God who calls us. We discover new relationships of love and peace with each other and are sent to minister in the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
Worship is central to who we are, and forms us to be disciples of Jesus Christ. Through worship we come to know God personally, and are given strength and hope to live out our faith throughout the week.
We are committed to careful preparation for worship, and follow the pattern of worship set out in “Uniting in Worship”. With the church throughout the world we follow a systematic reading of the Bible known as the Lectionary. We are committed to good preaching, and a warm, welcoming ministry with children.
Our worship is enriched by a strong musical tradition led by the pipe organ, our Choral Group and by our Samoan Choir when they worship at 10am.
