NHS Track and Trace

From 24 September 2020 as a place of worship we are required to display an official NHS QR code poster, so that members and visitors can ‘check in’ using this option to provide their contact details. If you have the app available on your phone, please scan the code when you enter the church building using the poster displayed in the Foyer. Please could you also continue to provide your contact details on the sign in list or bring a note with your details to put in the basket provided.

Church Family

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 ‘Church Life’ and ‘What’s On’ 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.

We meet together as a church family on Sundays at 9am, 11am and 6.30pm, where 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.

We encourage all of the St John’s church family to reach out to our neighbours and community, sharing the love of  Jesus, as well as keeping in contact with each other.

Our doors are open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey, so whether you are just starting to ask questions about God or are a committed Christian wanting to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at St. John’s. We look forward to meeting you soon!
