Families and children

It's official - St John's is a child friendly church!  We are very proud to have been presented with the 'Child Friendly Church Award' in March 2020.  We are currently the only church in the Diocese of Rochester to hold this national accreditation.

We warmly welcome children and families to all our main services, and we also have some events designed especially for them.

During most of our Sunday 10am services we offer a range of Sunday School classes catering for children aged from 3 upwards, while babies and infants (age under 3 years) can be looked after in our Creche.

Once a month, usually on the first Sunday, the children and adults stay together throughout the service, with songs and activities for children of all ages and a children's talk instead of our usual sermon.

Twice a month, usually on the second and fourth Sundays, we have our special informal service known as 4 O'Clock Church, which features Singing, Games, Bible Stories, Craft and a bring-and-share High Tea.

Come and visit!

Our church services and other events are open to all, and we hope you will feel very welcome to come along and visit. There's no need to book ahead, but if you do contact us before you come, we will make a special effort to look out for you.

We are situated on the corner of Park Grove and Park Road, Bromley, almost opposite Trinity United Reformed Church. We are a 10-minute walk from Bromley North and Sundridge Park railway stations. Entrance to our dedicated church car park is from Park Grove.
