Come to St. John's Church and enjoy some peace and quiet in order to pray alone, for as long as you like. There will be a steward in the church to ensure all the anti-Covid measures are in place for everyone's safety. For the same reason, please bring your own Bible, hymn or prayer book if you need one as you will not be able to use the church ones.
