Readings and Hymns

Welcome to St John's

The people of St John’s welcome you to join them in the worship of God through the traditional liturgy of the Anglican Church. At St. John's you will receive a warm welcome and openness that we hope reflects the love that God shows to each and every person through His Son, Jesus Christ. Our worship consists of Word and Sacrament. We preach from the Word of God, and the Sacrament is offered from the Lord's Table, where all who seek Him are welcome.

There are many aspects to a churches life, and this is so at St. John's. We encourage you to look around our site, as we are sure you will find different activities that you will enjoy joining in with. We want to be inclusive as the people of God, and so encourage you to bring your talents and needs to St John's.

St. John's is an historic church, with a rich history and tradition, but it is not a museum! It is a lively and vibrant place, seeking to be a light in the middle of the city. So, if you are passing through, or living in our lovely City of Albany, welcome to St. John's. We pray you find this site useful, and perhaps we'll see you some time. May God bless your journey.

A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY - SUNDAY 26TH NOVEMBER FAMLY SERVICE & SAUSAGE SIZZLE

What Is Your Life Invested In?

 

This is a well worn parable really, we know it, yet we don’t necessarily engage with it. Jesus uses the process of investment and capital gain to paint a picture of the behaviour he wants for his disciples. Jesus uses the principle of what is happening in the world of finance to model the life of a disciple. This is not meant to be a comment on how we handle money, but rather how we live as if we were the money or how our time and gifts and talents are like money.

 So, the point Jesus is making is: how are we investing our lives, do our lives bring something for God? Do we bring it with added interest? Do our gifts and talents bring something to life for God? And, is our use of time fruitful for God? Or do we dig a hole and hide ourselves?

It is a wonderful parable of how we can be creative and passionate for God for two, for five, for twenty talents more, the returns on God’s investment in us through Jesus is unbounded. What is our return investment in the kingdom?

 Blessings,  Paul
