St John's 10am Sunday Service - 26th June 2022
Please join us on Sunday 26th June, for our morning service, at 10am, in St John's Church. There will be a full range of groups for children and young people, with everyone coming to church for the first 10 minutes.
This will be the third in our series on Jesus, Gender and Sexuality, and this week Mike's talk will be on 'Jesus and gender'. The Bible passage is Mark 10:1-12. You can also read this in Traditional Chinese.
There is a small area of seating in church where masks must be worn and seating is distanced. Of course, you are welcome to wear a mask anywhere in the building. If you have COVID, please don't come to church.
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. Please say hello using YouTube chat.
From Tuesday 14th June until Friday 24th June, our church is going to be transported back in time to the first century as we host the amazingly immersive "Fisherman's Tale".
During the school day, the church will be visited by many of our local primary school children, but in the evenings and on Saturday 18th June, the church will be open for anyone to come and experience the life of Jesus, as told from the perspective of Peter the Disciple. All are welcome, we would love to see you.
The trail has been designed for adults and children, although some parents may feel it is most suited to children over the age of about 6. Access for wheelchairs is possible, but we would ask you to leave pushchairs just inside the entrance of the church.
Note! Whilst it is free to attend, advance booking is required. Tickets for 16th June onwards must be booked via EventBrite (no payment required). To book one of the Cantonese sessions on Tuesday 14th, please use this link.
