St Paul's apostolate was wide-ranging, and in addition to his letters where
possible he visited the Church communities around the Mediterranean. The
Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Justin Welby, in his many-sided ministry is
continuing in part that of his predecessor in visiting Churches of the Anglican
Communion. Not being a pope, and having few canonical powers outside
England, he ''presides in charity'', seeking to build bridges and offer
encouragement in widely differing cultures, and is able to exercise moral
authority. Please read the report on his recent visit to South Africa posted on the
lobby noticeboard.
On his visit, he called on Christians to the disciplines of prayer and spending time
in “contemplation and wonder”; “there has never been a renewal of the Church
without the renewal of prayer”, observing that while Jesus calls us to be �the light
of the world’ our internal issues can create barriers.
“Reconciliation is a complicated, fragile product and it takes time,” he explained.
“The mistake is to ignore it. It’s like a bicycle, which when you stop riding, will
fall.” “We are not to be like a political party excluding those that disagree with
us.” The Church does not have the luxury of throwing out people with whom it
disagrees. We are to be a beacon of hope on diversity and many other issues in
the church.
Archbishop Justin’s program included visiting Alexandra, one of the oldest –
mainly black and poor – townships, walking in witness to a small one-roomed
house where Nelson Mandela lived, connecting with and washing the feet of
young people, and referring to Jesus’ teaching that whoever wants to become a
leader must be the servant of all.

Music notes for today’s Family Eucharist: The setting this morning is by the
French composer, Charles Gounod (1818-1893); this mass was originally written for
tenor and bass soloists and later adapted for a four part choir. This morning the choir
will sing two anthems: the first written by the English composer Henry Purcell (16591695) as part of the Funeral Sentences composed for the funeral of Queen Mary in
1695, and repeated later in the same year at the composer's funeral. The second
anthem is by the Italian composer Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (c. 1525-1594), who
was maestro di cappella in several churches in Rome, most notably at the Julian
Chapel in St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. Palestrina left hundreds of compositions,
including 105 settings of the mass. The voluntary is an arrangement of the orchestral
march composed in 1937 for the Coronation of King George VI by Sir William Walton
(1901-1983). The stirring central march section (in E flat) is contrasted with the fanfarelike theme (in C major) which frames the march.
St John’s Men’s Group Breakfast on Saturday 19 July in the Parish Centre
will follow the 7:30am Eucharist. Our guest, parishioner and police force officer,
Winston Langthorne, is to speak on “how policing both challenges and
affirms one’s faith”. All welcome ($5 donation invited); to assist with catering,
please add your name to the list in the lobby.
The Australian Church Women (ACW) Fellowship Day Service will be
held on Friday 25 July, 10:30am at St David’s Uniting Church (3 St David Ave,
next to the police station) and followed by morning tea. The theme of the service
is “Building up the Body of Christ” with guest speaker Salvation Army Major Lyn
Middleton (National President of ACW). Offerings collected will go to support
training for young women in the Asia Pacific Area.
Happy Birthday: Joan Butler (13th), Kayden Bate (eight on 14th), and Tim
Swales (19th)
Op Shop: St John’s Op Shop raised $2,360 on Saturday 5 July. Many thanks to
all who contributed and helped.
St John’s Church and Community Centre - Sanctuary for all seeking
purpose in life; finding and sharing hope and strength; a place for prayer,
meditation, learning, understanding, friendship, care, encouragement and
Reading this week’s pew sheet, please reflect on ministries that focus on:
Women and Family Life at St John’s.
How can we encourage all involved?
Fellowship at St John’s (Focus on Women and Family Life)
St John’s has several Christian fellowship groups focusing specially on women
and family life.
o They provide within their programs scope for fun and fellowship, spiritual and
personal growth, intellectual stimulation, friendship, discussion, sharing of
ideas and experiences.
o They are open and welcoming to new members (who do not necessarily have
to belong to the Church).
o They seek to share Christ's love by encouraging, strengthening and
supporting marriage and family life.
Mothers’ Union
“MU Australia” was known for most of its history as the Mothers' Union and is
part of a worldwide movement, established by Mary Sumner in England in 1876,
within the Anglican Church. The movement sought to unite mothers in prayer,
fellowship and example in the discharge of their great family
responsibilities. Apart from Christian outreach, MU has been involved in a wide
range of social and political reform activities, mostly relating to the welfare of
vulnerable groups and in support of charitable work. The St John’s MU Branch
usually meets at 11:20am on the third Wednesday of the month after the
Wednesday morning Eucharist.
Caritas is part of MU Australia. It was originally known as “Young Wives” and is
less structured than MU. CARITAS, meaning “Christian Love for Others”, has
the motto: “Friendship in Action”. In Caritas, people find an unconditional hand
of friendship and a warm caring welcome. Caritas usually meets at 7:30pm on
the first Monday of the month.
All welcome
Both MU and Caritas welcome everyone into membership. You don't have to be
married or a mother or even a woman! There are many male members of MU
throughout Australia and worldwide, though at present we don't have any here.
For information on these groups, please see the weekly pew sheet for the week
before each meeting or speak with Deacon Sandra.
Other Activities
Other regular activities also provide a focus of fellowship for Women and Family
Life, for example in:
o Children’s ministries – Playtime, Godly Play
o The Songbirds (formerly the Singing Mums) – young mothers’ choral group
In addition to their own programs, members of both MU and Caritas are deeply
involved in the many other activities of the Parish, including:
o Sunday worship – lessons and prayers, sidespeople, choir
o Weekday worship, prayer and bible study
o Hospitality, welcoming and reception – volunteers in the Café and Office and
supporting various events
o Support – cleaning the church, grounds and brass, the Op Shop and fundraising
