What's happening at St John's?

A warm welcome to our website.  Our range of services and events mean that all are welcomed unconditionally,whatever age or background, and will find a Christian home that is growing together.

As a growing church family our aim is to reflect the Sheffield Diocesan vision; to be a part of growing a sustainable network of Christ-like, lively and diverse Christian communities in every place which are effective in making disciples and in seeking to transform our society and God’s world.
