First Communion

Through the meal of Holy Communion, the real body and blood of our Lord Jesus is given with bread and wine. In worship, Baptised children of God are invited to regularly eat and drink at the Lord’s table to receive the assurance of sins forgiven and life with God forever. Before regularly receiving Holy Communion we desire to teach children about this meal. As 1 Corinthians 10:16 says: ‘Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?’

To help prepare young children, St John’s provides a short First Communion program over several Sundays each year. Parents and their children attend the program together before celebrating their first communion milestone.

Children are generally in years 3-5 when preparing for first communion, but this is negotiable. Older and younger children and adults are also welcome to participate in the first communion program.

GIFT - Generations In Faith Together

Passing on the Christian faith can be supported with partnerships between individuals and families across the generations within the Congregation. At St John’s, God has blessed our congregation with people of many generations. Each generation can learn, grow and be blessed as we interact together. Generations in Faith Together (affectionately called GIFT) is the name we give to intentional activities and events, that we provide in association with our Sunday worship, that bring the generations together to encourage all ages in their faith as they participate in a common activity.

You can expect to find creative GIFT activities provided after some of our Sunday Services. Regardless of your age you are invited to join in and celebrate life together! ‘From generation to generation we will proclaim your praise’. (Psalm 79:13)
