St John's is an ancient Church with its faith very much in the future.

 

We ARE a welcoming, caring, nurturing community where God's loved is shared.

We WORSHIP as a family with Christ at the centre.

We SEEK to reach out with God's love to welcome all through prayer.........and cake!

We JOIN with the Diocese in LIVING GOD'S LOVE

Have a look at our calendar to see what is going on this week.

We always have good coffee, delicious breakfasts on a Sunday and a warm welcome.

 

 

St John’s Prayer for 2016

We shall REST and we shall SEE;

we shall SEE and we shall KNOW;

we shall KNOW and we shall LOVE;

we shall LOVE and we shall PRAISE;  Amen
