St Johns Church interior

"We use contemporary Anglican liturgy based on inclusive, liberal theology"

St John's Worship

A church is community of people with different personalities and varied interests so it is not easy to describe what it is like to worship with us. If you have not worshipped with us before we will be very pleased to welcome you.

We endeavour to make our worship a worthy offering to God, joyful and relaxed yet dignified with our worship centred around the Eucharist. Our services are sacramental in nature, pointing beyond the visible physical stuff to the invisible and mysterious stuff of God. We use contemporary Anglican liturgy based on inclusive, liberal theology. We aim to engage your senses, your mind and your soul.

There are many ways of drawing close to the divine such as words, music, images, silence, contemplation, discussion, teaching and so on.

We hope we offer a warm welcome. Although we know we won’t always succeed, our aim is to offer worship and activities that are open and accessible to all, regardless of physical ability, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, age, income and any other thing that us humans like to use to divide ourselves up.

Angela Stensness Children & Family Coordinator

Messy Church

Fun activities with a message for children and their families.

During 2021 we will hold Messy Church on the 4th Sunday of each month at 4pm, usually in the church hall. We begin with a range of craft and interactive activities, followed by a Celebration time and then we share a meal together.

Angela is the Children and Families Coordinator at St John's. She enjoys the opportunity to help nurture and grow the faith of young people and their families within our parish and local community.

Sing! Sing! Sing! Come and join us!

St Cecilia is regarded as the patron of music, because she heard heavenly music in her heart when she was married. The music we make on Wednesday afternoons may not always be heavenly but it is fun. We are a group of music-lovers who spend an hour from 4-5 on Wednesday afternoons singing together at St John’s. The focus is on the music for the upcoming Sunday worship. Only some of us read music so that is not a requirement and not all of us make it every Wednesday. We are always looking for more to join us and would especially like to add some male voices. Please ask the Parish Office for details.
