St John's is a place of worship, prayer, friendship, challenge, music, social action and so much more!

We are a very lively parish in the liberal catholic tradition.  We exist to be a community of people who worship together and grow in faith and friendship.  

There is always lots happening for you to get involved in. You can find out more on this website. Children are a vital part of our church family, we have very close links with St John's School and we also have a busy Sunday School as well as choir and other youth activities.  There are also Bible study groups, lots of musical activities and a vibrant social scene.

We are a friendly church that welcomes everyone: we have people of all ages and backgrounds and we really like that!  We hope that if you live in this area you will come along and find your place in St John's Church.
