Church Closure

ESSENTIAL REPAIRS ON THE CEILING FOLLOWING
A RECENTLY DISCOVERED STRUCTURAL FAULT

At this point in time, worship at St John’s will continue in the Parish Centre until further notice. Following receipt of further information, as well as additional consultation and planning concerning the scaffolding requirements and whilst ensuring the organ and fabric of the building are protected, the Churchwardens and PCC have decided that, with great regret, we will not be able to use our building for worship and events until an estimated date of 14 February 2018.

Full choral services and other events due to be held in the church will cease during this period. In the meantime the temporary service pattern of Sunday 10.30am Parish Communion, Sunday 6.30pm Evening Prayer and Wednesday 10.30am Said Communion, in the centre, will be in force for the duration of this period. Sunday morning services will include Footsteps for children, and for younger children a crèche area will be provided. Refreshments will be available after the service and everybody is most welcome to attend. Please note that all bookings in the Parish Centre remain unchanged.

Opening hours for the Parish Office are 9.30am to 2.00pm, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Out of these hours, only in the event of an emergency, please contact the Churchwardens.
