Church of England Diocese of Southwark Waterloo, St. John with St. Andrew

About Us

Who we are.....

We believe that God is found in unpredictable and unexpected places in the life of the city, and our worship and life try to reflect this.  We also believe that Jesus calls us to welcome everyone, and to work tirelessly for a more just, fairer and a safer world.  We are therefore committed to working with Church and other groups on key issues of social justice, including resisting encroaching climate change.  We are also proud to offer a home to several arts organisations on the Southbank fringe, including the Southbank Sinfonia and Futures Theatre.

Our worship is in the Anglican catholic tradition.  Our congregation is made up of people from the UK, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Germany, the USA, Australia, Malaysia and many other places.  We have LGBT members, married people, single people, children and adults.  We also offer a warm welcome to students currently studying in London.  We have a developing Junior Church, and above all, a strong community of local people and people who travel in to Waterloo.

A comment from one of our congregation: ‘I love St John’s, because it’s the kind of church I think Jesus would be at home in.’
