Liturgy at St John’s
The Liturgy here at St John’s seeks to draw people into a deeper sense of prayer and into deeper communion and friendship with the Lord. It is through the Liturgy that we encounter the Lord who seeks to reveal himself to us. As we encounter him we are drawn into the narrative and mystery of his love for us. In the Liturgy we come close to the Lord.
Through the celebration of the Eucharist, the Sacraments, the Liturgy of the Hours, times of adoration and times of personal, private prayer, we come close to the Lord who seeks to draw near to us. The Eucharist is at the heart of each and every day. We gather to listen to Gods word proclaimed to us and to celebrate the gift of Christ himself in the Eucharist as we remember his saving death and resurrection.
We come ‘in memory’ of Jesus to be re-membered as the Body of Christ so to be better at being the love of Christ in the every-day of our lives. The Liturgy at St John’s seeks to shape and mould us as icons of Christ so that through our prayerfulness, through our closeness to him, we might be better at being signs of his closeness to others.
