A reflective service of Holy Communion without music. The service follows liturgy from Common Worship, which is provided in an order of service booklet. There is no music, but there is a sermon and space to reflect, pray and meet with Jesus.
St John’s Locks Heath is now open for individual prayer between 9am and 12noon, Monday to Friday. It’s a quiet space to sit, pray and listen for God’s voice. Use the simple prayer stations (for adults and children) to inspire your prayers. Please note that the Church Centre (including the toilets) will remain closed for now.
Please take extra care in the building. Read the signs, use the hand sanitizer on the way in and out, and keep 2 metres away from everyone else.
We gather in church for a service that is more liturgical and includes Holy Communion following Church of England guidance. We are observing the required coronavirus procedures and so it is necessary to book in advance. Please see our website for full details.
A structured service of Holy Communion with music. We gather to sing and praise God, to hear his word, and to gather around his table at communion. Music (which is a mixture of traditional and more contemporary hymns and songs) is usually led by a choir accompanied by the organ or a piano. The words are usually projected on a screen. The service follows liturgy from Common Worship, which is provided in an order of service booklet or on the screen. There are no children's groups at this service, but children are welcome. The service is relayed to the Grove Room (immediately behind the church) for families who need more space. Refreshments are served after the service in the Grove Room or the hall, together with the 10.45am congregation.

A service with an emphasis on informality, creativity and encountering Jesus. Doors open at 10.15am for refreshments. We usually begin with a time of singing as we praise God and become more aware of his presence with us. There is a talk about the bible, and time to reflect and respond to it. On the third Sunday of the month we also celebrate communion together. Children are welcome at this service and there are usually children's groups. Children begin in the service until it's time for them to leave for their groups, and return for the end of the service. You are welcome to keep your children with you in the service if you prefer. On the first Sunday of the month the service is suitable for all ages and there are no groups. Refreshments are served before the service from 10.15am in the Grove Room or hall, together with the 9.15am congregation.
