Hello! Welcome to St John's. We are a warm, friendly Church of England Church. We gather together to meet God, meet friends and to learn to live life better, and we go out to love and serve the people of our parish and our town.
We believe that the Good News of Jesus is profoundly relevant to life in the 21st Century. We want to grow in our understanding of this and share it with others.
We have a variety of services in different venues and different styles, and lots of activities through the week for all ages.
You should find everything you need in this website. If not please get in touch.
At St Johnís we deliberately hold a variety of styles of worship, so that there is something for everyone. Our menu at the moment includes:
All Stars 9:15am in the Church Hall, St Johnís Church Rd
All Stars is a new and very different style of church: short, interactive and designed for people of all ages but particularly for young families. We meet in St Johnís
Church Hall on Sunday mornings from 9.15 - 10.00 for worship, teaching, fun and doughnuts.
Morning Worship 9:15am at Grace Taylor Hall
This short, informal service caters takes place in Broadmead Village. We both hear and discuss Christian teaching, but the emphasis is on friendship. The GTH congregation is under the care of Frances Morgan, one of our Readers. The third Sunday of each month is a service of Holy Communion.
Morning Worship 10:45am at St Johnís Church Rd
This is currently our best-attended service, with relaxed Anglican worship, music and teaching. We teach thematically, seeking to apply the wisdom of the Bible to real-life situations we all face. Before and after this service we serve coffee and biscuits. On the second and fifth Sundays of the month the services are Holy Communion.
Pause for Prayer 6:00pm in the Church Hall
This is our opportunity to take time to pray for St John's mission and ministry in a small informal gathering for about 45 minutes.
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8:30 - 9:00am
A short service of Morning Prayer with Bible readings and prayers for the day ahead in Grace Taylor Hall, Lucy Ave.
