Worship

We are people of all ages gathered with all our quirks in response to the alluring adventure of discipleship following Jesus Christ.

As a faith community standing on the corner of Willis and Dixon Streets, we continue the presence and proclamation of the Gospel in the centre of Wellington city, valuing our traditions and acting creatively for the future.

Your connecting with us is no coincidence and we’d love you to take the next step.

Services

PewSt John’s usually has two main services on a Sunday – at 10 am and 5.45 pm.  We’d love to see you at either (or both!) of these.

The morning service tends to follow a traditional format, with the children and youth going out to their programmes after the children’s talk section of the service.  Most services have a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary songs. There are a choir and a contemporary singing group.  About once every 6 to 8 weeks there is an all-age worship service, which involves young people, and is multi-media in style.

Following the service, tea and coffee are served in the foyer, to which everyone is warmly invited. Most Sundays, the morning congregation numbers between 180 and 230 people, so there’s always someone to talk to!

We offer a free Creche facility in the Chapel so that parents can participate in the morning service knowing that their children are well looked after.  St J’s Kids (Sunday School) operates during school terms during morning services.

Evening services - The St John’s evening service is an important expression of our life of faith and worship together. It has adapted at different times yet helping young adults know and worship God remains its focus. To maintain the focus of the evening service we recognise some changes are needed:

  1. From November 2017, the evening service will be a worship time (i.e. no meal)
  2. The worship service will be a more condensed experience (no longer than 45min)
  3. It will still start at 5:45pm, held in the chapel (rather than the St John’s Centre)

If you would like to know more about the evening service please contact one of the ministers.
