COVID-19: It’s all a bit different, but the church is alive!


Christmas is not cancelled!

At St John’s, Locks Heath, we believe that the meaning of Christmas is more important than ever before in our lifetime. In a world that is lacking in good news, we plan to celebrate the birth of Jesus, who is the giver of life, hope and joy in any way we can!

We plan to offer our services in the church if we are permitted to, but if you can’t join us in person, or if we’re not able to do so, we will still have great opportunities to celebrate with fun, family friendly online service.
