Sunday Service Times
All our services seek to help people connect to Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, grow in their love for him as his disciples,
and equip them to serve him in every area of life. Each of our services are aimed to achieve this through a
distinct service style, which are explained in more detail below.
8 am Sunday - RETURNS ON 28 JANUARY 2024 (currently in recess)
We enjoy a prayer book service each week, with the 4th Sunday of the month sharing in the Lord’s Supper together. On the 5th Sunday of the month we hold a Morning Prayer service. There is a genuine warmth of friendship and fellowship amongst our congregation members. On the 1st Sunday of the month we also enjoy 'Tea N Toast' together after the service.
10 am Sunday
A down-to-earth service of 60-70 adults and 20-25 children and teenagers of all ages and walks of life and cultures, no matter your situation in life, you’ll feel right at home.
The service has great music and contemporary songs, bible teaching applied to everyday life, times of prayer and reflection, all presented in an easy to follow multimedia format (which is also live-streamed). The service is followed by morning tea, which is a great time for building relationships. On the 1st Sunday of the month we have lunch together in the hall - all are very welcome.
During the service children are welcome to join in the fun at Sparklers (preschool-Year 2), Bonfire (Years 2-5) and Surge (Years 6-10). There is also a family room inside the church for parents with younger children, where the service can easily be viewed and the audio available over the PA system.
5 PM Sunday
Donald Robinson Village, Kirrawee
Sunday@5 church is all about relationships, with God and with one another. While recognisably “Anglican”, it is also very welcoming of people from all denominations and backgrounds. There is a high level of involvement from the DRV community, with an intention to connect out in to the local and global community with the love of Jesus. Visitors are welcome, under COVID guidelines.
Coordinators: Rev. John Reed and Faye Hillier, DRV Chaplains
6 pm Sunday
Our 6 pm service has between 30 – 40 adults who gather to encourage one another each Sunday, with great music and contemporary songs, an engaging bible talk, and times of prayer. One of the best-kept secrets of St John’s is the fabulous supper that takes place each week within this service which provides an enjoyable and relaxed space to get to know each other better and catch up on each other’s lives. On the 1st Sunday of the month, we skip supper and enjoy dinner together in the hall following the service where people often stay on to chat and pray. Our service is finished by 7.30 pm so that workers & uni students can be home early.
