St John's is the Church of England parish church which serves the people and town of Beeston, in Nottinghamshire. We think of ourselves as a community of people, not just a building, but you'll find our beautiful church in the centre of Beeston, on the green adjacent to the tram stop. It's been a place of prayer and worship for centuries, where people have marked the significant milestones of their family and community lives, and sought to meet God, and share in God's work.
Our worship, theology and spirituality (what we believe, and how we relate to God and one another) are broadly in the modern catholic style - but if that's new to you, there are plenty of opportunities to find out more about what that means. We believe in creating spaces where people can encounter something of the mystery and love of God, we encourage one another as we ask questions, and make connections between faith in Jesus and our everyday lives, and we try to be open to different ways of seeing.
Rich and diverse worship lies at the heart of our community, centred on the Eucharist, and our 10am Sunday service is our principal act of weekly worship. This is supplemented by other services on a Sunday and during the week which are smaller and more reflective in nature.
Whatever brings you to St John's we hope you find a warm welcome and space for encounter with God, with community and with yourself.
