We believe meeting together as the family of God is a time when we can particularly encounter Jesus and experience his power and presence. So we encourage everyone who thinks of themselves as a member of our church family to make being part of our regular services a priority.

Love, Wind & Fire

On Sunday May 22nd Café Church is moving into the main church for the evening and inviting members of the morning service and others outside St John’s to a special event featuring Cafe Church’s occasional gathering of musicians and poets the ‘Men & Women of Uncertain Age’ (among them a couple of names and faces from St John’s more distant past, Steve Weeks and Jo Whitfield!). Godfrey Rust has put together a programme of songs, readings, poems and images called “Love, Wind & Fire” telling Jesus’ story from Holy Week to Pentecost in Cafe Church’s eclectic way, including plenty of songs to sing together. The church will be set out café style with refreshments available throughout – from 6 to 7.30 – it should also be streamed on the web.”

Sunday Mornings

at 10am

On Sunday mornings we meet to worship God, learn and pray together and get to know each other every Sunday morning from 10 – 11.30am.

On most Sundays during term time we worship together for about 20-30 minutes before the children and young people leave for their own age-appropriate groups. Out of school term time our children stay in the main service rather than go to their own group. These Whole Church Family services are normally an hour long, fast-paced and include something for all ages.

Sunday Evenings

at 5.45pm

Café Church meets from 5.45–7pm each Sunday in the Lounge, set out café style with refreshments available throughout the service. Café Church welcomes anyone who comes, especially those who feel comfortable in a less conventional church service. Teaching and sharing of faith stories are Christ-centred. Prayer and discussion take place round the tables and in the room as a whole. Communion is celebrated monthly.

Belonging

In a church the size of ours, it’s not always easy to feel you belong. So, we encourage all our members to join a Connect Group where close friendships can be formed. Our Groups meet during the day and evenings through the week for Bible study and learning together, prayer and friendship. Please click here if you would like to join one of groups.

Serving

God gives each of us gifts and talents to serve one another and our wider community, we have lots of ways in which you can serve at St John’s and we’d love for you to get in touch with us here if you are interested in serving – such as worship, kids, youth and more…

Giving

The work of St John’s made possible by the generous giving of people in our Church family. So we encourage everyone to consider prayerfully regular giving to the work of the church. If you would like to donate regularly, please email our Treasurer, Kate Castelino here
