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.

Second Sunday after Epiphany 15th January 2017  

Second Sunday after Epiphany                                                 15th January 2017                                              Greetings,

‘The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (That is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus’ (John 4:41-42)

 What might have happened if Andrew had not invited Peter to meet Jesus? A great witness for God might have been lost. You see the importance of ‘invitation’. This passage, from today’s Gospel, underlines the importance of having a concern for our fellow human beings and their ultimate welfare.

Most of you will know of many occasions during the year where we have special services that are open to invite the community to come and join our worship. These are special occasions that we have where we encourage to bring friends, family and neighbours to accompany us to Church. All good so far.

However, I’m thinking should this be the norm, rather than the exception! Shouldn’t we be an ‘invitational church’? By this we mean that inviting others to accompany us to church and church activities should occur all year round.

During this year, the first opportunity to invite family, friends and neighbours is the Parish Fun Day on Sunday 5th February at 11:30am onwards. A Mystery car run to a secret destination with a ‘Bring and Share’ Picnic Lunch – Fun and prizes guaranteed. It is also a Fundraiser of the “Raise the Roof” Committee.

Rev'd Dr Desiree Snyman
