Welcome to our website
Welcome to our website.
Here at St John’s all are welcome unconditionally to come together as a church family. We have many different services and events taking place throughout the week in the Church and our praish centre, all of which reflect that as a church family, we welcome all, young and old,as brothers and sisters in Christ.
Whether it is in the peacefulness of our morning prayer services, our traditonal choral services on a Sunday or our All age services, everyone can find a place for their faith to grow at St John’s.
We are a growing church family of many different ages which also reflects the community around us which we aim to serve.
