St John's Loughton

Welcome to St John's in Loughton!

Whether this is your first time here, or you know us well, you are very welcome. If you local please feel free to join us for any of our services, and if you are not nearby then please do join us online - we regularly stream our Sunday services, and other important services too. We are a diverse group of people, some who come because we are curious, or feel a need to find out more, and some who have been on their journey as Christians for may years. We have a range of services from a quiet space with traditional words that have been used for centuries, to the bustle of a family service with children everywhere. We also have a weekly Eucharist (communion) service with beautiful music from our choir.

For other's St John's is a place to come and sit a while, to light a candle, to think or pray, a place that is personal, a place that holds memories. Whatever your reason, you are welcome.

If you'd like any more information about services, pastoral care, live events (such as weddings, baptisms or funerals) please do contact us.
