Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings we meet at 9:30am for worship. All ages join together for the start, and then we divide into two: Godly Play for kids aged around 3-11, and a more traditional worship service for the adults. Communion is celebrated on the third Sunday of the month, and everyone, of all ages, is welcomed. After the service each Sunday we invite everyone to join us for morning tea and a chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones.

Everyone is welcome at all of our services. If you’d like to know more, please feel free to contact our minister, Chris, on 0402 012 418 or

Our printed Bibles tend to encourage this sort of approach, by inserting sub-headings to tell us what each paragraph is all about.…

Mark 1:21-45
(this is the sermon from Jan 17th, which I forgot to upload!)
You’d have to say, Mark doesn’t hang around. In Matthew and Luke’s gospels Jesus doesn’t start his ministry until the middle of Chapter 4 – but here we are, just on our second chunk of Mark, middle of Chapter 1 – and Jesus is right into it – proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God and, I suspect more importantly, showing people what it looked like.…

Beginning Mark

Mark 1:1-20
Today we begin a new the new year for real, as it were, and with it a new series of readings and sermons. I’ve been at St. John’s for six years now, which means we’ve gone through the three year lectionary twice, and I thought it might be time for something a bit different.…
