‘Not open after all!’ … Sunday 8th August

Sadly, with lockdown restrictions back again, we won’t be able to meet this Sunday 8th August at 10:30am.

However you can still tune in to Life 105.1 FM at 9am when we’ll praise God with hymns and songs, prayers and readings. There’ll also be something for the children and Philip will be preaching on 2 Kings 4:1-7 (the sixth in a series on the prophet Elisha). Or, you can always listen in on our website whenever it suits!

‘Back together!’ this Sunday 1st August

With lockdown restrictions eased, we ARE able to meet this Sunday August 1st at 10:30am to worship God and encourage each other. We are limited to 60 people. If you can’t join us, you can still tune in to Life 105.1 FM at 9am when we’ll praise God with hymns and songs, prayers and readings. There’ll also be something for the children and Philip will be preaching on 2 Kings 3:1-27 (the fifth in a series on the prophet Elisha). Or, you can always listen in on our website whenever it suits!

‘On again’ Sunday June 6th

After a week off, we’re back at church on this coming Sunday June 6, but with masks on (unless you have a medical exemption) and with only 50 people allowed to attend. Philip will be preaching on Psalm 73.

With this in mind, you are strongly encouraged to contact us to book a place for the 10:30am service, where we will be sharing the Lord’s Supper.

We understand that not everyone will be comfortable coming to a meeting of 50 people and we are therefore offering an afternoon service (at a time to be set) where we will share the Lord’s Supper again. If you would like to register interest in attending this service, please also follow the above ‘contact us’ link

And if you can’t be there, catch us on Life 105.1FM at 9:30am or listen on our website!

Podcast only this Sunday May 30

With the lockdown just announced by the Victorian State Government from midnight tonight for 7 days, we’ll not be able to meet on Sunday May 30 (this may extend beyond next week – depending on restrictions) This means that our celebrations for Jean’s Spicer’s retirement will be put on hold until we are free to meet together again. Please be much in prayer for this whole situation… especially the stopping of this most recent outbreak…

However, we will be on the radio, Life 105.1 FM at 9:30am. Philip will be preaching on Psalm 86. This will be followed by our Zoom morning tea (10:30am) and prayer meeting (11am). If you would like to join with us for these, please contact us.

Return visit of Rhys & Rhondda Hall

Rhys and Rhondda are no strangers to us at St John’s. They are ‘veteran’ missionaries in Uganda with Pioneers and APWM and we are looking forward to their visit to us on Wednesday June 9th. Rhondda will be speaking at an afternoon meeting in our hall at 1:30pm, and then both Rhys and Rhondda will be speaking at the same venue at 7:30pm.

Come and hear the latest! There will be an offering for their support at both meetings.

Contact us for further details.

Welcome Wednesdays up and running again!

‘Welcome Wednesdays’ (or as some call it ‘Wacky’ Wednesdays) is up and running once more.

We meet in the Upper Room (just the meeting room off the Hall) from 10am-1pm for a cuppa, conversation, craft (bring your own), laughter and friendship.

You are most welcome to drop in and say ‘hi’ – even stay for the whole morning – and make it a regular event! We look forward to seeing you there!

Anzac Day 2021

While we won’t be dedicating the whole service to this important occasion, we won’t be forgetting those who we ought to remember at our service at 10:30am…especially the men from St John’s who did not return.
