St John's Sunday Service - 4th June 2023
Please join us on Sunday 4th June for our morning service at 10am in St John's Church. This week is an All Age Service, so everyone stays together in church.
We are having another in our series where we look at the Ten Commandments together. This Sunday, Nathan will be teaching us about the sixth one and the Bible passages are Exodus 20:1-13 and Matthew 5:21-24. You can also read these passages in Traditional Chinese: Exodus and Matthew.
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. It's lovely to know who's joining us, so please say hello using YouTube chat.
