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 17th June 2018  

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost – 17th March, 2018 – Mark 4:26-34

What is the kingdom of God?  God's kingdom is mentioned more than one hundred times in the New Testament, so it must be important to us.

A kingdom can be defined as a territory in which a king rules over his subjects.  Jesus said that his kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36), meaning it's not a physical kingdom with geographical boundaries, as normal kingdoms are. Neither is it a kingdom that can be seen with the human eye so that someone could say: 'Here is the kingdom of God.'  God's kingdom is invisible to those in the world, because the kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:20–21).

Jesus said that no one can see (perceive, understand) the kingdom of God unless they are born again (John 3:3).  And no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit (John 3:5). Water, in this context, refers to the Word of God (1Pe 1:23).

Jesus' kingdom is a spiritual kingdom where he reigns in the hearts of his subjects.  His kingdom consists of everyone who has surrendered themselves to him and made him King and Lord of their lives.  In today’s gospel reading Jesus gives three parables to help us understand the kingdom of God; the Parable of the Sower, the Parable of the Growing Seed and the Parable of the Mustard Seed.  Let us thank God today for his Spirit, who alone can guide and give us a deeper understanding of his kingdom.

Blessings, Rev Helen
