Music plays a very important role at the Anglican Church of St John the Evangelist in Gordon, NSW, Australia.

All Sunday services at St John’s are sung:

  • 8.00am Holy Communion: sung by the 8am Singers
  • 9.30am Sung Eucharist: sung by The St John’s Parish Choir
  • 4.00pm Evensong (2nd Sunday of month, March-November): sung by various choirs

St John’s encourages good music in liturgy. Music is a gift from God and as we offer it back to God in worship, we offer God only the best humankind can produce. We hope you will join us in worship and concert at St John’s.

We are working with South Island Organ Company (New Zealand) on our new main organ! This is substantially a new instrument using Hill, Norman and Beard pipework and components. Stage 1 comprises installation of the SIOC/HNB organ in the chancel in place of the Rendall organ (see below). Stage 2 comprises restoration of the Rendall organ to its original smaller configuration as an antiphonal west gallery division. Recently, the 90-year-old Rendall organ was removed from the church to storage. The new chancel organ will be installed in time for Christmas 2019.
