About Us

Historically, Whorlton was perceived as something of a 'country church', serving the 'Village' (Westerhope), right out on the very edge of the city. New estates grew up, and most recently, major developments right on our doorstep!

Prompted by this, we've been thinking very seriously about who we are and what we stand for. In these discussions, 'conversation, not conversion' - providing Christian company (open to all) - emerged as a touchstone. All are welcome to our worship: weekly, monthly, occasional/seasonal attenders, those new to faith or exploring anew. We've also decided to focus upon hospitality, music, and the environment.

If labels help, St John's is roughly middle of the road (attempting a mixture of friendliness and formality).
