St John's is a friendly evangelical charismatic Anglican church looking to welcome people of all ages and traditions.

We exist to Make Followers of Jesus who make a difference wherever they are.

Sunday mornings at 9:15am is a quiet contemplative service based on modern Common Worship Liturgy. 

Our 10:30am service holds together a blend of traditional and contemporary worship styles. Our worship Team uses a range of instruments and includes a group of singers. 
There is a Childrens corner for 0-3s at the back of church, where parents can still remain in the main body of the church while their child plays quietly. During the 10.30am services (except on the 2nd Sunday of the month) we have thriving children and youth groups. For children aged 3 to 16 years we have Kidzone and The Experience who go off to their own teaching groups to explore life and faith in a fun, and interactive way. Every 2nd Sunday is All Age Worship when we are joined by members of our Uniformed Organisations

 We have several Discipleship Groups which meet weekly and a Mother's Union group that meets twice a month.

We run an Alpha course that explores the basics of the Christian faith.
