Look at Jesus - Follow Me

February 2, 2018

In the fourth instalment of our Look at Jesus series, senior minister Tim Johnson explores the social connections we form with people of different faiths and the negative stigma around the Christian faith as he challenges us to always be ready to defend our faith. In the Bible, we see Philip invite Nathaniel to meet Jesus.

Tim references the Bible at John 1:43-51

Look at Jesus - Who are you?

January 10, 2018

In her first sermon at St John's, Robyn Delbridge kicks off our new series, Look at Jesus, picking up where our Christmas series left off, in the book of John. We meet John the Baptist, who is telling everyone he can about Jesus, who is about to start his public ministry. When asked by the religious leaders, John makes it clear that he isn't the be all and end all, and that soon, someone even greater will be them. 

The reference for this talk is John 1:19-28.

Jesus and the Spirit - The Advocate

November 23, 2017

As Christians, we believe in one God, with three distinct identities: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The first two of these, are pretty easy to understand, at a basic level. God the Father is the big guy in the sky, God the Son is Jesus, God in human form, but the Holy Spirit? That's tougher to wrap our tiny human brains around. This series looks at what Jesus said about the one who would come after him, the holy spirit.

I am… The Way, The Truth, and The Life

June 7, 2017

Possibly the most well known I AM statement from Jesus. Our series continues this week to explore who Jesus says he is. We live in a "post-truth" world, but what is truth? Jesus claims to be the truth, above all.

I Am…The Ressurection and the Life

May 31, 2017

Andrew Bowles delivers his final sermon at St John's. Jesus sits at the heart of the Christian faith, making several bold statements about himself. When Lazarus dies, Jesus mourns for his friend, but establishes and displays his power over death, stating that he is the resurrection, and the life.

I am… The Gate

May 15, 2017

Continuing our I AM series, we go back to what is at the heart of the Christian faith, and examine Jesus, and his revelation of God. There are seven times in the Gospel of John where Jesus said 'I am', and gave a series of images that explained who he was. This week, we look at Jesus when he spoke of himself as 'the gate' in John 10:1-10. Tim Johnson looks at what this means, with Jesus claiming to be the exclusive way to a relationship with the God the Father.

I Am…The Bread of Life

May 2, 2017

When we go back to what is at the heart of the Christian faith, we find Jesus, and his revelation of God. There are seven times in the Gospel of John where Jesus said 'I am', and gave a series of images that explained who he was. The first we are looking at in this series comes from John 6:35-59, where Jesus spoke of himself as 'the bread of life'. Tim Johnson looks at what this means, with Jesus as the one who nourishes and sustains those who believe in him.
