Welcome to the website of St. John’s, Gordon.
The Season of Advent is often confused as the preparation for Christmas. Advent is actually all about the return of Jesus and our need to be ready. Christmas and Advent, however, go well together because Christmas is the reminder to us that God has fulfilled his promise once in sending Jesus into the world, and the promise of Jesus to return can therefore be taken seriously. Although it has been 2000 years since Jesus ascended to heaven his promise to return is still as valid today as it was then. The challenge for us is to be ready for when he returns. Are we?
With every blessing to you all
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
