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

The Book of Common Prayer has this old prayer for parliament. What better time than now to pray it!

MOST gracious God, we humbly beseech thee, as for this Kingdom in general, so especially for the High Court of Parliament, under our most religious and gracious Queen at this time assembled: That thou wouldest be pleased to direct and prosper all their consultations to the advancement of thy glory, the good of thy Church, the safety, honour, and welfare of our Sovereign and her Dominions; that all things may be so ordered and settled by their endeavours, upon the best and surest foundations, that peace and happiness, truth and justice, religion and piety, may be established among us for all generations. These and all other necessaries, for them, for us, and thy whole Church, we humbly beg in the Name and Mediation of Jesus Christ our most blessed Lord and Saviour. Amen.
