Welcome to St John’s Church

St John's Church

Welcome to the website of St. John’s Parish Church, Old Coulsdon. As Rector of St John’s, I hope you will find this site informative and helpful. St. John’s is part of the Church of England and is a familiar landmark in Old Coulsdon. It has been the parish church for this area for a thousand years.

Our aim is to help people discover and get to know Jesus. We believe he lived and died and is alive today, and that through faith in him it is possible to know the love of God as Father, and the presence of the Holy Spirit making that love real. We express that aim in our worship, in our care for people, in our links with the wider church, and through various other activities which are described in this website.

We are a group of ordinary people on a journey of faith and discovery. You are very welcome to join us as we travel on together.

Rev. Paul Roberts – The Rector

Rising from the ashes of the devastating fire at Notre-Dame de Paris the cross speaks of defeat giving way to triumph, death to life, sadness to hope. A symbol for Good Friday.

Lord Jesus,
your broken body, laid aside,
rose in glory.
Give resurrection hope to the people of Paris
and all who grieve the destructive fire
at Notre Dame.
From the ashes may beauty once more arise,
as from the grave our new life comes.

(A prayer from the Dean of Southwark Cathedral)
