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.

Sunday 23 April 2017  

Padre White Sunday Day                                             23 April 2017                                                   

 Padre White Sunday

 Padre White started the day with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at dawn, the time the convoys had left in 1914. In a later Service, Padre White led his parishioners on a Pilgrimage to the summit of Mount Clarence, where they watched a wreath, tossed out by a boatman in the Sound, float out to sea. He believed that:

 Anyone could lay a wreath on a monument, but here was something beautiful about…..dropping the wreath in the sea in memory of all those men who made their last contact with Australia here.

 Today we continue that tradition and honour the legacy of Padre White.

NOTE: Sunday 23 April service

23 April – 6am Padre White followed by breakfast

Grace and peace.  Desiree


Editor Note:
