Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we'd love to meet you and welcome you into St John's family.
We know it can be overwhelming or intimidating to meet new people and come into a new place but our welcome team is more than happy to say hello and make you feel at home.
Have a look at the ministries below and don't hesitate to ask any questions. Hope to see you soon!
Our vibrant youth group meets every other Friday from 6pm to 8.30pm. Loads of fun stuff in store in a chilled atmosphere where you can make true friendships. (11-16 year olds)
The Table is St John's new congregation led by Idina Dunmore and the ministry team. It's an informal Jesus-centered worship gathering with stories, prayer, music and food. The Table happens once a month in the Parish Centre hall. Everyone is welcome. Please check the What's on page for upcoming dates.
Messy Church is a way of being church for families involving fun. It is found across the world and its values are about being Christ-centred, for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. At St John’s, Messy Church is held after school about once a month on a Friday between 3.30-6pm. Activities are focussed for Primary-school age children, and families from all faith backgrounds & none are offered the opportunity to connect with Jesus through games, sports, crafts, prayer and stories from the Bible. We finish with a meal for all the family, when we celebrate birthdays and enjoy time together.
Kim Mall and team run the Children's Ministry on a Sunday morning. The session runs alongside the adult church service in the Parish Centre. The aim is to provide our young worshippers with an insight to following Jesus and to be able to learn and praise together in a fun environment. Please note you will need to register your child when they go out to this group. (3-11 year olds)
Home Groups are spaces for friendship, studying the Bible and prayer. Please see below for some of the groups which are currently meeting and which you might like to join:
We run Alpha course from time to time and also a course follow up. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
The still small voice - Contemplative Service
The still small voice is a contemplative service- a
chance to stop, be still, reflect and recharge. Come and
join as we listen, wait and receive encouragement from
God’s word and the Holy Spirit.
The still small voice meets on the first Sunday of every
month from 18:00-19:00.
