Due to the Covid19 pandemic, messages of condolence for the death of Prince Philip are being requested online rather than a book being available in church. National online books of condolence are being made available as a safe way for the public to leave messages of condolence. You will be able to find these on the Church of England’s website: www.churchofengland.org and www.royal.uk It is suggested that the online books of condolence should be closed at the end of the day following the day of the funeral (Saturday 17 April).
We are now having Sunday services at 9.30am, 11am and 6.30pm. All are broadcast live on our website (and Facebook/YouTube/phone-in) or you are welcome to join us in the building. Details of the services can be viewed here.
Please can we remind you to comply with Covid safety precautions when you come to the church building: to use hand sanitiser, to wear a face covering, to sign in on arrival and keep 2m distance from others at all times.
from Sunday 18 April Children’s Groups and Core will run during the 11am service. Get in touch with Kev or Chris if you’d like to be involved. For those children and young people watching at home Chris and Kev are sending details of Zoom meetings, Captain’s Cave and other activities. Please contact the Church Office for more details.
We are a busy church community with a wide range of services, events and group activities each week throughout the year. More information can be found in the ‘About Us’ and ‘What We Do’ sections of our website.
Church Family Members receive our St John’s Weekly News each week by email, by post or hand-delivered. Please contact the Church Office if you wish to receive this or click here.
When we meet together as a church family we love to sing God’s praises, pray together, and hear the Bible read and taught, with groups for children and young people to learn more about God and how to live for him every day.
