Bishop Jenny's visit on May 5, 2019
Worship is one of the central acts of people of faith and, here at St. John's, we currently offer online worship. We gather together, we are nurtured by the scripture, we listen to music, we pray, and we converse. Everyone is welcome to participate fully. In an effort to make you feel welcome, our service leaflet includes everything you will need to participate. We’re friendly and we will respect wherever you are on your faith journey. We hope you will experience the presence of God when you worship with us. That’s the kind of space we are trying to create. You are most welcome to join us in person or online. Please see the home page for more information about our upcoming services.
We participate in a cycle of readings called the Revised Common Lectionary.
Each Sunday, as part of the Worldwide Anglican Communion and in fellowship with other Christian churches all over the world, we all pray from and learn about the same scripture text.
If you wish to have a look ahead at what we will be reading on Sunday or would like to follow your own daily or weekly reading plan, go to https://www.biblegateway.com/reading-plans/revised-common-lectionary-semicontinuous/next?version=CEB
You will find several different scripture translations on the site. We recommend the New Revised Standard Version or the Common English Bible. We also regularly use the Inclusive Bible translation at St. John’s, however this version is not available on the site.
In-person worship has resumed and we will also continue online at the same time. Please see the Home Page for information about the Diocesan vaccination policy.
You are welcome to join the Zoom Meetings online or by phone. The Zoom links and the Order of Service are updated weekly on the Home Page.
Invitation to Centering Prayer
Tuesdays at noon
Wednesday mornings, 10:00 to 10:30 am
Are you drawn to listen more deeply, with ears, eyes, and heart? Are you searching for some way to step outside the noise, the stories, the busyness, and stand in the river of your life without anxiety, without striving, with confidence that the strength enabling you to stand in the flow comes directly from God? If you’ve been longing for deeper spiritual awareness, join us for the practice of Centering Prayer. No experience necessary, no introverted temperament required – only honesty, commitment and a good sense of humour.
