Life, hope and joy at St John’s
What’s Happening Now that Restrictions are Lifted?
We no longer require bookings for Sunday or Wednesday services at this time.
We will leave the QR codes up in church should you wish to use them on the NHS Test & Trace app. You can also leave your name with the steward if you want to. We will keep any names supplied for 21 days.
Some people will continue to wear masks and prefer to keep their distance. Please respect their choices.
We will continue to stream both services on Sunday. You can use the link below to visit our YouTube channel.
If you know someone who struggles with YouTube, we’re still running our Dial-in Worship service. Dial 01489 665885 for a recording of this week’s bible reading and talk (updated every Monday by lunchtime). There is no additional charge for this, other than the cost your telephone provider charges for a call to a landline.
Youth & Children
Children’s groups run alongside the 11am service on Sunday and during the week. For details click here
For more information about any of our children and young people’s groups, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Keeping in touch

Even though we are limited in how we can get together at present, we are always able to pray. Centred around prayer, there are activites and creative ideas which we invite you to get involved with. You can get involved with these or view our list of current prayer points to help you as you pray.
