Teen Church

The young people of St John’s consist of a vibrant group of school-going youth (13-18) actively seeking God through relationships with each other and through participation in the life of worship at St John’s. On any given Sunday there are between 15 and 25 (?) youth present within the church.

KidZOwn

The young children of St John’s consist of an energetic group of children ranging from the age of 3 to 12. This is what other communities would call Sunday School or Junior Church. We meet the first 3 Sunday’s of the month whereby the children break into groups of 3 classes where the smaller ones ages 3 – 5 is in one class (Abegail Maupa) and 6 – 8 in one class (Malayna Matthew) and 9 – 12 in one class (Buyi Thwala).

Servers 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sanctuary (altar) team is made up of clergy, lay ministers, the choir and servers. Servers are largely the younger “face of the altar” assisting with altar protocols especially when we have High Mass. This ministry also provides our young (some as young as 8 years old) with an opportunity not only to learn the high mass aspects of the Anglican Liturgy but also to fully participate in it. They continue to show immense dedication and their presence adds indelible beauty and meaning to our worship.
 

Choir


St John’s has a choir in the tradition of the Royal School of Church Music, which was established about 50 years ago. We have a pipe organ, and the organist / music director is Christopher Cockburn. We use some traditional hymns, with a generous mix of more modern “choruses”, and try to have something for all tastes.
 

The ABC concept

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the year 2008, it occurred to me that some Anglicans were no longer as proud or at least not as enthusiastic about their church/denomination as they should be. It also seemed to me that there was quite a serious push “to be like other denominations” where young people “were running to”. While there is nothing wrong in learning from others in order to improve our worship, there is something special about being different! Our ways of meeting and experiencing God (seen through our worship style) can never be the same and the way denominations mediate that experience cannot be the same as well.

Men’s group

A group of St Johns men who meet once every second month for fellowship and discussions around the bible, leadership, family and other things that can assist better our church. This casual gathering is both insightful and fulfilling to the men of St John who strive to continuously better our parish in every way possible.
 

Heritage

In the late 1980's, Hazel England, curator of the Pinetown Museum, carried out extensive research and produced a publication on our St John's cemetery, which forms an integral part of Pinetown's history.  In 1999, Fred Pitout, then rector of St Johns, in consultation with the late Peter Sherratt (a parishioner) and Hazel England, erected temporary crosses on unmarked plots in the Anglo-Boer War site.  Subsequently, these temporary crosses were replaced with regulation metal crosses and inscriptions.  A re-dedication service was held on the centenary of the ending of the Anglo-Boer War.
