If you are like me your a bit confused about what the weather is doing in Sydney!!! Although it is nice to see so much rain.
Welcome to my October message for St. Johns. There is much going on in the Parish this month. On October 20 is our Spring Fete and Market. This will take place from 9am to 2pm. Hopefully when you logged onto our site a pop up appeared on your screen advertising it. There are many new stalls, including an Asian Food stall. One of our new parishioners is a restaurateur and has kindly volunteered to do this. We will have usual Op-Shop, cakes, Café, Spit Roast, Chocolate Wheel, Knitted garments, crafts, fruit and veg stall, luck dip, kids games including a jumping castle and face painting, etc. Come along and enjoy the day and bring your family.
The other exciting news is that we have signed a contract to replace our Rendall Organ. This instrument has served the parish faithfully since the 1930’s. Its useful life is rapidly drawing to a close and it is now time to replace it. The new Hill, Norman and Beard Organ will be built and installed by the South Island Organ Company from New Zealand. We have some digital images of what the new organ will look like. Simply click on the Gallery Page and you will see the images under the heading “Our New Organ.”
This month also sees the Diocesan Synod from the 15th. Please pray for me and our Synod Reps as we attend and contribute to this important part of our Diocesan Life.
I do hope that you continue to return to our site, click on the sermons, blogs, and other information that you might be seeking. There is a lot of information about what is going on here at St. Johns, and I do hope that you might feel that this is a place where you can encounter the living God who created the heavens and earth and all that therein is, and seeks to enrich our lives by His Holy Spirit.
May the blessings of the Season of Trinity be upon you all, and may you find here the true love of God, and above all an honest expression of the Christian life and faith.
written by our former Rector, Father Bill Weston
God our Father, send your Holy Spirit upon the people of this parish. Give us a greater love for all. Make us more compassionate for the sick, the lonely and all in need, more zealous in the inspiration of the young, more concerned about the wider mission of the Church and more generous in our giving of service and money. Help each one of us to know what we ought to do and give us strength and courage faithfully to do it, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
