Interior of the Church
The interior of the Church is simple with plain glass windows in keeping with the intentions of the architect.
The Candle Stand
The candle stand was made and donated by Ian Benson. It is situated at the front right of the church and anyone is welcome to light a candle for someone special to them.
Stations of the Cross
Around the church, you can see twelve Stations of the Cross -
a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. The stations grew out of imitations of Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The object of the stations is to help the Christian faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.
These are simple representations in line with the architecture of the church and leaflets are available at the back of church to explain their significance. They were designed and made by Church Members, Miriam and Bill Longstaff.
‘When we follow the stations of the cross, we enter into the passion of Jesus and this helps us to meditate on His suffering and on how this reflects in our own lives. We focus on Jesus, with all those involved with Him and on ourselves. We think of His faith and of His love for us. We repent of our sins and remember all the evil that led to His death and how it still exists to this day.’
The kneelers were fabricated by members
of the congregation.
In 2018 we purchased 4 new altar frontals in memory of Mac McCulloch and Audrey James who recently passed away. They were two stalwarts of St John's. We are grateful to Mac and Audrey for their bequests which made these puchases possible.
