St John the Evangelist, Clapham

St John's is the centre of much important community work. Our main parish church is Christ Church, Union Grove, where most services take place. 

Welcome to Christ Church and St John Clapham. We are an inclusive parish and a community made up from many nationalities and diverse backgrounds.

We are proud to be located in one of the most varied, colourful and vibrant communities in the whole of London, among the broadest spectrum of God’s People. We reflect the local area by having a lively, outward-looking focus whilst offering all the traditional services and activities you would expect from your Parish church.

Serving you and everyone in our community is our goal. So you can access a very wide range of activities, including outreach and befriending for senior citizens, support for refugees and asylum seekers, early years sessional care and much more that may be hard to find elsewhere.

Whether you’re looking for specific information on Baptism, weddings or funerals, or just want to discover more about your church, please come along to Christ Church on Sunday at 11.00 am.

Our parish is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Southwark’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
