Worship

God has created us to worship and praise him.

We do this by loving God through serving others. Jesus says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30, 31)

Christians have always worshipped on Sundays, the day of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, and on other days that remember events in Jesus’ life, such as Good Friday.

As we hear God’s word, receive Jesus’ body and blood in holy communion, and encourage one another in our singing and praying, we are strengthened to worship God 24/7.

St John's offer four opportunities to regularly worship together:

8:45am Service

The 8:45am Service is a warm and welcoming service held weekly in the St John’s Ministry Centre. Various Lutheran liturgies are used on a rotational basis with either a piano, organ or occasionally guitars, to lead the hymns. We also celebrate Holy Communion every week and our Service includes a Children's Talk as well as offering all children Worship Folders containing fun activities.

A team of friendly volunteers offer tea and coffee after each service to allow for some social fellowship.

10:30am Service

The 10:30am Service is a vibrant and friendly weekly service held in the Concordia College Chapel. It is an instrumental service, using contemporary songs, we celebrate Holy Communion fortnightly.

This service includes a weekly Children's Talk as well as a teaching and craft time ministry for children called Bible Detectives for children in ELC-Year 2 and 36’ers for children in Years 3-6, these are held in the Chapel foyer during the Sermon time. Additionally there are Children's Worship Folders for all the children containing fun activities.

A team of friendly volunteers offer tea and coffee after each service to allow for some social fellowship.

10:30am Combined Service

Every fifth Sunday of the month as well as at Easter and at Christmas we have the special and exciting opportunity of the whole congregation, from both services, to worship together in the Concordia College Chapel at 10:30am. The purpose of this service is to bring our two major worshipping communities together. This service includes the celebration of Holy Communion, a Children's Talk and Children's Worship folders containing fun activities for the younger worshippers.

A team of friendly volunteers offer tea and coffee after each service to allow for some social fellowship.

6pm Reconnect Evening Service

St John’s now also offers a 6pm evening service for those who are unable to attend the morning or who prefer to worship in the evening.

This service is a communion service and is held in the Church Ministry Centre on the following dates for 2019: 20 October, 3 November, 17 November.

We welcome you at any and all of our Worship Services and we would love to have you join us.
