VICAR: The Rev Dr David Powys
Postal Address: 27 Childers Street, Cranbourne-3977
Baptism and Confirmation: Christian parents who are Anglicans or want to become Anglican, and desire to claim God’s love in Jesus for their children through infant baptism, are invited to contact the Vicar (David) about baptism preparation.
Adults not baptized, or adults baptized but who have not publically professed faith themselves, are invited to contact David about adult baptism or confirmation.
Because baptism is an event for the whole ‘Christian family’ (the whole church), this takes place in a normal church service.
St John’s has a delightful, traditional building, which is an ideal setting for a traditional wedding. The vicar is available to conduct weddings where at least one in the couple is an Anglican (active or not). Charges can be kept to a minimum to assist any who might otherwise struggle to afford to marry (David is a firm believer that a $200 wedding is sometimes better for all concerned than a $20,000 wedding). To discuss possibilities, please contact him on 59968461 or e-mail VICAR
Funerals : St John’s can seat up to 300 people. It is available to people who would like the vicar, assisted by others, to lead a life-affirming Christian service of thanksgiving for a loved one offering hope for the future because of what God has achieved through Jesus Christ. People do not need to be members of St John’s to request such a service. If a bereavement is anticipated it is often helpful to speak to the vicar in advance.
