About Us

St John’s is a warm, welcoming and mixed community.

Supported by an enthusiastic choir, our worship is structured, yet relaxed. 

Our “Growing Discipes” and “Messy Church” programmes provide fun and learning for younger children and teenagers enjoy challenging activities . We also sponsor Scouting and Guiding at all levels, with “Mothers Union” or the “Ladies Fellowship” for women and the “Friday Knights” for men. 

We reach out into the community through our own Primary School, and Shirley High School as well as through “Shirley Neighbourhood Care” a group offering older and disabled people with drives to health related appointments and participating in a weekly mini-bus drive to local supermarkets and a weekly Luncheon Club.together with other ecumenical work.

We run a Sunday afternoon Tea Room offering home made cakes and cream teas and Fairtrade beverages every week
