St Johns Southgate

17 Apr 2012

Easter may have passed but for the community of St Johns Southgate it is the beginning of just about everything.

Pastor Ian Vainikka quoted St Augustine in his Easter Sunday sermon to make that very point. “We are Easter people,’’ said Augustine, “and Allelluia is our song.”

The message of redemption through Christ’s death on the cross and his resurrection is, of course, the focus of Easter but also of just about every activity at St Johns.

To make this point in joyful fashion this Easter, tenor Robert Macfarlane and members of the St Johns Bach Orchestra performed G.P. Telemann’s cantata “Ich weiß, das mein Erlöser lebt”  (“I know that my redeemer lives).

And the celebration continues in similar fashion at 7.30pm on Ascension Day, May 17, with J.S. Bach’s “Gott fähret auf mit Jauchzen” (“God ascends with shouts of joy”), a cantata for four soloists, chorus, strings, two oboes, three trumpets, timpani and continuo.
