We are looking for a creative and energetic choir director to take over and grow the St John’s choir. We want someone with a passion for four-voice Christian choral music and for developing the musical aspects of worship. Applications for either part-time or contract employment will be considered.
The successful applicant must be willing to work within the ethos of the Uniting Church of Australia. Although it is not a requirement, the congregation would welcome the successful applicant becoming involved in the regular morning worship and the life of the church community. The congregation would love to welcome applicants to join in a worship service with us to experience the joy which we receive from our music.

It feels a bit self-indulgent, but I’ve often been asked if it’s possible to record the sermon on Sunday mornings. So over the past few weeks I’ve been experimenting with doing so.
If you want to listen to, rather than read, the Sunday sermon, there are now three ways you can do so:
- When the sermon is posted on the website, you’ll see a ‘listen’ link at the top. Clicking on it should make it play through your web browser. You can also right-click to save the mp3 file to your computer.
- You can subscribe to the sermons as a podcast in iTunes using the link to the right.
- About once a month I’ll create a CD of the past 4 or 5 sermons and make it available for borrowing from Church.
