8pm in the Sanctuary
Each Sunday evening in Advent we will celebrate a service of compline in the St. John’s sanctuary. These will be contemplative services, with prayers from the Book of Common Prayer, the New Zealand prayer book, meditative music, and both scriptural and poetic readings. Please join us for this time of prayer and reflection.
For more information on these activities, please contact Chad Smith.
Advent Quiet Day
Saturday, December 4, 9 – 11am
Join us on Saturday, December 4th for our annual Advent Quiet Retreat from 9am to 11am . We’ll explore the idea of “Sabbath” and have time for corporate and personal prayer, reflection, conversation, and, of course, silence.

Healing Prayer Circle
Sunday, December 5, 3pm in the Chapel
Come for an informal time of support and intercessory prayer for those experiencing grief, loss, or a need for healing. This is not a service or a therapy group, but a simple time for conversation, support and prayer. The circle will be facilitated by newer St. John’s member Tabitha Kyambadde, and will take place at 3pm in the Chapel.
Those who wish to can follow this time with the Service of Loss & Remembrance at 4pm, but this is not expected as these are separate events. Either way, we know that the past year and a half have been extremely challenging on so many levels. Come and experience God’s love and healing through others who walk the journey with you.
Loss & Remembrance Service
Sunday, December 5, 4pm in the Sanctuary
The gatherings and festivities of the holiday season are a poignant reminder of losses of all kinds.
St. John’s invites you, your friends, your neighbors–any who seek companionship and consolation in this season. Chad Smith will provide a beautiful music backdrop for this special annual service.
