A Call to Prayer

Each Thursday from 8-9pm, we will be meeting online via Zoom to pray. We will pray for our nation during this crisis and our church in this vacancy. This meeting will continue weekly through November and into Advent, when we hope to also include an advent small group study for the whole church.

Christmas is not cancelled!

While we all realise that Christmas this year isn’t going to look like it normally does, here at St John’s, we are determined to celebrate the REAL reason for this season.  Christmas is not cancelled as the source of our life, hope and joy is still very real and ever present.
Whether we have to stream the services or hold them in person, we WILL be doing everything we can to celebrate the birth of a saviour who brings hope to the world, even in dark times.
