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 a bit more detail below.
We enjoy a prayer book service each week, with the 4th Sunday of the month sharing in Lord’s Supper together. On the fifth Sunday of the month we hold a Morning Prayer service. There is a genuine warmth of friendship and fellowship amongst our congregation members.
A down to earth service of 65-75 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. The service is followed by morning tea (non COVID times), which is a great time for building relationships.
During the service children are welcome to join in the fun at Sparklers (preschool-Year 2), Bonfire (Years 2-5) and Surge (Years 6-9). There is also a family room inside the church for parents with younger children, where the service can easily be seen and the audio available over the PA system.

Sunday@5 church is all about relationships, with God and with one another. These services are currently paused due to COVID-19. While recognisably “Anglican”, it is also very deliberately 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. Our service is currently on YouTube at 5pm each Sunday during the Sydney lockdown, accessible here: https://www.youtube.com/c/StJohnsSutherland

Our 6pm 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 (non-COVID times) 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 every 4th Sunday of the month (in non-COVID times), 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 7.30pm so that workers & uni students can be home early.
