The 5pm evening service is an informal worship service with a strong emphasis on biblical teaching, contemporary music and congregational involvement. Families, youth and young adults fit in well to this service and make up a large part of those who gather there every week.
If you are looking for solid spiritual food to sustain you during a hectic week, come along on Sunday evenings. Because of its relaxed and casual nature, the 5pm service often varies in structure.
Kids’ Church | 5:00pm Sunday
Although the 5pm Kids’ Church is offered in the church hall during the sermon, the fun for the children starts at the beginning of the service with a Kids’ Spot, led by our Youth Minister, Rob Woolfrey. The children at 5pm are encouraged to take part in the service itself, and often help with singing at the front of church. Kids’ Church starts in the hall after the opening worship time; games and activities, Bible stories, and interactive discussion stimulate their exploration of the Bible and Christian issues.
Resources and toys for younger children are always available at the back of the church in our purpose-built crèche area, and children and babies of all ages are always welcome at St John’s. At St John’s we love for people of all ages to be involved in and be part of the service, so we encourage families with babies and young children to stay in the Church during the service and make use of our crèche area.
