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 20th May 2018  

Day of Pentecost                                                            20th May, 2018 


20th May, 2018 Day of Pentecost


Jesus did a number of things to prepare the disciples for the mission they would have once He left the earth.  The most important thing He did was to send the Holy Spirit because it was the Spirit that led the disciples to build the church and to join them with the apostle Paul and to the gentiles.  It was the Spirit that enabled them to do miracles to demonstrate the power of God’s kingdom and that same Spirit is still at work today.

The Holy Spirit resides in all of us all and empowers us to walk that narrow and tight path.  It also empowers us to know truth from fiction (if we are listening).  It empowers us to works that are far beyond what humans are capable of.  The Holy Spirit is our Counsellor and Advocate.  The word Counsellor is a legal term for the one who will defend someone against an adversary and who guides that person during the ordeal of trial.  The Holy Spirit is our Advocate and Helper who brings us safely through the challenges and adversities we must face in life.  However, we must choose to live in the Spirit and to follow the direction it provides.  This means that we have to always slow ourselves down, pray, think, examine the scriptures, and make the choice to follow what God is calling us to.

Blessings, Rev’d Helen
