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.

Next week's readings: Sunday 25th November 2018

In some ways, it’s hard to find the “good news” in today’s Gospel reading which is often called the “Little Apocalypse.”  The destruction of the Temple, false prophets, wars and rumours of wars, earthquakes and famines  - isn’t the most uplifting bit of scripture but Matthew and Luke provide even more information, known as the “Olivet Discourse” because our Lord was speaking on the Mount of Olives.  For many, it is a description of the end of the world.  It is talking about the end of a world, the world of First-Century Judaism.  The destruction of the Temple in 70 AD marked the end of Judaism as it had been known.  No longer could the people offer sacrifices.  No longer was there a symbol of unity for the Jewish people, no longer a physical home for God in this world.  It was gone, not one stone was left on top of another and therefore the source of identity for thousands of people went with it.  It was the end of their world.

But there is a message of hope within the destruction.  It is the promise that God will not forsake his people, regardless of what the world looks like.  Every generation since those who first heard the Olivet Discourse has faced an end.  People have for centuries believed that the end of the world was imminent.  People look around and think, “How can it get any worse?  Surely this must be the end.”  And yet we continue on and God is still with us.  Take comfort in the fact that God is still with us!

Blessings, Rev Helen
