St. John’s Anglican Church – Cranbourne (SJAC)-2016 will make it 152 yrs. old
St John’s Anglican Church serves Cranbourne and surrounding districts. We believe we have an important part to play in commending Christ and his way within our community. Most of us live in Cranbourne and we range from very young to the very old. In various ways we all know that life is a struggle, but that God is strong and good. Our aim is to grow in our appreciation of God, to point others to God’s love, and to use our various abilities to honour God and build God’s Kingdom. Our slogan is ‘Growing People, Building Community’.
As Anglicans we aim in our worship services to engage heart, mind and will in response to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. We believe that what we do the rest of the week matters as much as what we do in our services. We believe that God’s work in the world is much larger than what we are doing in Cranbourne, and are keen to support that work beyond our church.
Message from our VICAR
As you explore this website I hope that you will see that St John’s does not make great claims for itself, but does seek to honour an amazing God and looks to God to do great things among us for the good of all around us. We seek to be biblical and inspired by the Spirit of God. We want to welcome everyone. We value our Anglican identity with its rich emphasis on bible, the mind, the world, well ordered congregational life and the value of each member.
We make no claim to be a great church but the aim to be the best we can by God’ grace.
St John’s is on an exciting path – aiming to grow significantly in numbers, ministries and mission over the next five years. You would be most welcome to join us, or at least come to one of our services to form your own opinion. If you would like to speak with me about membership, or some matter of faith, please e-mail me at Email David Powys or phone me on (03)59967858)
