St John the Evangelist

We are indeed in unprecedented times. Rev. Philip has set up and published a very simple online 'blog' page where he will provide prayer and worship resources for use at home. He will also be publishing homilies and ideas for use on Sunday's and other occasions (i.e. Holy Week) It is in development, but it is here: 

Also, there is a dedicated email address for anybody to use if they are in need or can provide help with anything in this time.

It is  [email protected]


St John's is a friendly welcoming Church which is opened every day between 10am and 4pm and everyone is welcome to come into Church to pray, light a candle, sit quietly and take photographs as well as sitting in the grounds of the Church.
