Holy Communion

Holy Communion, as stated below, is a central part of our worship practice, but we have not yet recommenced providing it. More information on the reintroduction of this sacrament will be forthcoming. 

Holy Communion is celebrated at all worship services. Communion is offered to all baptised Christians who believe that Jesus gives his body and blood with the bread and wine, and who wish to receive forgiveness of sins and a life in Christ Jesus.

Participation in Worship

Singers leading worship. We value the participation of people in worship at St Johns, including preparing the worship centre for services, welcoming people, reading lessons, singing and assisting the Pastors with leading the worship services.

Children in Worship

Children are welcomed as a vital part of the St Johns community and worship life, and are regular participants on our 9am and 11am services. We believe that children should play an active and creative role within the life of the congregation.

Music

Music and singing feature prominently in our worship services.
9am worship features an organ in the Baroque style, built by Melbourne organ builder Knud Smenge. Traditional hymns and liturgy are a regular part of 9am worship and Bach Cantatas are included in the service several times each year.
