On Sunday mornings we meet at 9am and then again at 10.15am
The 9am is a quieter, relaxed and more traditional service, which always includes celebrating Communion together. We sing hymns and spend time looking at how God wants to speak to us through His word the Bible. The service lasts between 45 and 50 minutes.
The 10.15am is the best service to come to if you are new to St. John’s or to church generally. There will be people present at all stages of their faith journey, some are agnostic, some are finding out more about Jesus, right up to those who have been followers of Jesus for many years. The service usually lasts about 80 minutes and refreshments are available in church afterwards. We celebrate communion once a month on the second Sunday of the month and on the first Sunday of each month, all age groups worship together. The worship style is contemporary with a creative use of multimedia and a central emphasis on looking at how God wants to speak to us through his word, the Bible.
Children and Young People During the 10.15am service (apart from the first Sunday of the month) the children & young people are encouraged to join in with their own groups, known as Ngage These take place in the Church Centre next door to the church. The children & young people start off in church and then go to their groups after a short time. We do also have midweek groups for those in Year 7 and above which meet on Monday evenings, again in the Church Centre.
Midweek. There is a midweek service at 10am on Thursdays in Church followed by refreshments in the Centre. This is an informal service of Holy Communion, which lasts about 25 minutes. This service does not usually run in school holidays.
