Let me welcome you to St John’s! I am so delighted you have found our web site. We are a Church family in Wimborne for anyone living, working or studying around this area. Whoever you are, whatever your age, whether you’re an experienced Christian or not, we would love you to join us.
From an intrigued onlooker to the committed follower we are keen that everyone should grow in relationship with God through knowing Jesus. To help us do that our emphasis is on hearing God speak to us by his Holy Spirit through his word, the Bible. Each of us knows that we only grow in a relationship with someone and get to know them when we spend time listening to them and responding and reacting to what they say. So the focus of St John’s is on listening to God’s word, talking to him in prayer and taking up all that he says.
The Church family here at St John’s longs to help anyone who wants to investigate the life of Jesus. On this site you will find people, meetings, talks and events shaped to help you take another step forward in finding out more about God and his love for us in Jesus, and to help you get linked into the church family life.
I do hope I will have the opportunity to meet you personally in the very near future and that you will quickly feel at home at St John’s.
Revd Peter Breckwoldt, Vicar
New Life is found when people have a living relationship with Jesus, which they come to through faith and repentance. New Life starts now and continues into eternity.
Full Life is found when people learn to live every day with Jesus and grow in their love and knowledge of God and each other. This will be seen by becoming more Christ-like, and serving one another and the wider world.
We believe that the Spirit is powerfully at work today making Christ known to the world and transforming us to be more like Christ.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the primary way in which the Spirit works to make Christ known.
