We are delighted to welcome everyone who comes to us on a Sunday. We know that people have many motives for coming to church. It could be that you are exploring the Christian faith, a new Christian, or someone who has been a Christian for many years and are just looking for a place to meet with God and his people. We also know that coming to a new place is not an easy thing, but thank you for wanting to come and know that you are most welcome.
Our 9am service is focused around our Bible teaching and lasts about an hour. It is a more reflective often using the organ as part of our sung worship. We hear from God’s word and pray together, seeking to be encouraged and equipped for the week ahead, as well as sharing Communion on the first Sunday of the month. Children’s groups don’t operate until the 11am service.
This is a fairly contemporary service with groups for children and young people (more information can be found about these groups on their individual pages). It’s aimed at those who are mature in their faith as well as people who are interested in learning more about Christianity. We sing God’s praises, hear from God’s Word, and pray together, as well as sharing Communion on the first Sunday of the month.
On special Sundays throughout the year, we join together in the morning for a single service.
Our next joint services are on:
Sunday 11 November – Remembrance
Sunday 23 December – Christmas
Sunday 30 December – Christmas/New Year

Sunday evenings have a relaxed atmosphere and a growing congregation; why not arrive early for a drink and maybe a slice of cake? We have Communion together on the third Sunday of the month, and every week is a great time to meet with God as we sing, pray and explore his word together. Fuse (our group for 14-18 year-olds) also meets after this service.
On the second Sunday of the month from 3-5.30pm, St John’s gets Messy! Messy Church is a great way for families to encounter Jesus together; we explore the Bible through games, crafts and activities for all ages, ending with a shared meal. We don’t charge for Messy Church, but all donations are welcome. Keep up to date with the latest news by checking out the Facebook page.
