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 15th April 2018  

Third Sunday of Easter                                                               15th April, 2018 


15th April, 2018 Third Sunday of Easter


Nothing is too wonderful for God! We should never doubt it but trust like Abraham and Sarah, that nothing is too wonderful for God.

What is doubt?  It’s not the opposite of faith.  Indifference is probably the opposite of faith. Feeling lost and despair may be the opposite of faith but doubt and faith are often side-by-side, never far from each other.   Doubt and faith are often partners on the journey of life.

The story from Luke today highlights “they were disbelieving and still wondering.”  After Jesus appeared to them and said “peace be with you” and even after he asked them “why are you frightened and why do doubts arise in your hearts.”  He showed them his body again as proof that he was really there.  Then it says, “while in their joy, they were disbelieving and still wondering.”  That is often how we are – disbelieving and still wondering.

We all have our doubts but we are also surrounded by faith and God, who never lets us go. Therefore when our hearts are open, even as we are “disbelieving and still wondering,” we get a taste of refreshment for our parched souls and are reminded that God continues to be at work in our lives where we need it !

Blessings, Rev’d Helen
