St John's Sunday Service - 1st October 2023
Please join us on Sunday 1st October for our morning service at 10am in St John's Church. This week is our Harvest All Age Service, so everyone stays together in church.
This Sunday, Jon will be preaching on Exodus 20:1-17 and 1 Timothy 6:17-19 as the final part of our Ten Commandment series. You can also read these in Traditional Chinese: Exodus 20:1-17 and 1 Timothy 6:17-19
We would love to welcome you in the building but, if you can't make it, the service will be available online via our livestream on our YouTube channel. The livestream will start around 9.55am. It's lovely to know who's joining us, so please say hello using YouTube chat.
We still have a limited area of seating in church where masks are worn and seating is a little more distanced.
What do you love most about life on planet earth? What disappoints you in the world around us?
Creative Journey - if you could imagine a perfect world, what would it be like? And how would we get there?

Special Church Service - to celebrate the two weeks of Imagining Eternity, we will be holding a special service in church on Sunday 22nd October at 10am. If you haven’t been to church before or don’t have the chance to join us very often, this will be a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our hope in eternal life and to celebrate God’s goodness to us. The service will be suitable for adults and children of all ages. We’d love to see you there.
