Sunday and Weekday Service Times
People have worshipped God at St John's for more than 175 years. All are welcome as we seek to respond to God who in Jesus took human form and reached out to us. We anticipate recommencing worship when Canberra's Recovery Plan Stage 3 is announced. However, there will be only two Services on a Sunday (9.30 am and 6 pm) and 10 am Wednesday. MORE...
Holy Communion or the Eucharist (which means thanksgiving) is our main act of worship. Each Sunday, we gather to celebrate the communal life that we have been given through the risen Christ.

Weekdays (other than Public Holidays):
From earliest times, Christians have gathered at regular hours to read from Scripture, to recite psalms and hymns of praise and for intercession. Many Anglicans use the Daily Offices to encourage their prayer life.
The Daily Offices (Morning and Evening Prayer), are set times of prayer that are found in Anglican prayer books, including 'A Prayer Book for Australia’. These set prayers are combined with readings from the Bible, psalms and intercessory prayers.
Morning Prayer is said at St John's each week from Tuesday to Friday at 8.30 am in the side chapel. Come and join us and strengthen your spiritual life.
9.00 am Tuesday to Saturday Morning Prayer via Zoom
