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.

The Second Sunday of Advent 4th December 2016  

The following poem by Rowan Williams is a helpful

reflection on Advent:

 

Advent Calendar

 

He will come like last leaf's fall.

One night when the November wing

has flayed the trees to the bone, and earth

wakes choking on the mould,

the soft shroud's folding.

 

He will come like frost.

One morning when the shrinkig earth

opens on mist, to find itself

arrested in the net

of alien, sword-set beauty.

 

He will come like dark.

One evening when the bursting red 

December sun draws up the sheet

and penny-masks its eye to yield

the star-snowed fields of sky.

 

He will come, will come, 

will come like crying in the night,

like blood, like breaking,

as the earth writhes to toss him free.

He will come like child.

 

Rev'd Desiree Snyman
