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 minister@stjohnswahroonga.org.

As a result, Jerusalem was packed – every inn was full to overflowing, every street packed with stalls, animals, and people, people, people.…

Listen!
Jeremiah 31:31-34 | John 12:20-26
Last week we explored the idea of judgement as it appeared in Jesus’ conversation with Nicodemus. The judgement that Jesus described there was far removed from the sort of judicial imagery that we seem to instinctively associate with the term; (the judge finding you guilty and sentencing you to some penalty); instead what we found was the image of light coming into the world, and people choosing either to flee from the light, because they were too ashamed of what they had done, or choosing to come into the light, so that what they had done could be seen for what it was.…

Exodus 20:1-17 | John 2:13-22
The cleansing of the Temple, we normally call it, and even the name comes laden with overtones of meaning – cleansing, making clean; the imagery of scrubbing away that layer of black gunk stuck onto the frying pan after a particularly unsuccessful fry-up (or that just me?) – making something clean again.…
