Welcome to St John’s Church

St John's Church


During the Covid-19 outbreak I will be using this page to post regular updates about the life of the church.

A church has been on this site for over 1000 years, but now we are having to find new ways of being church. It’s often said that the church is more than the building, and now we are discovering the reality of that.

Here at St John’s we have always attached great importance to our gathered worship as an expression of what it means to be the body of Christ, and as an expression of mission.  Now that has been taken away from us, and no one knows for how long. So we are are learning how to stay connected using other ways such as Facebook, Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.  And we are thrown back onto our most important spiritual resources: the bible and prayer.

Let’s commit ourselves to maintain and strengthen our faith through prayer and the reading of the scriptures.  Each morning at 9.30 I shall live stream a short message and prayer on the Facebook page. If you are able, continue with me in Morning Prayer.  Use the Church of England’s  Daily Prayer or download the app.

I shall be praying and working from home for the time being.  If you have any enquiries, please phone the rectory on 01737 552152 until further notice.

As we approach Good Friday, we remember Jesus who died alone on the cross. His friends deserted him, his Father forsook him, and his mother could only stand at a distance and watch. For those in hospital dying alone Jesus shares their desolation. ... See MoreSee Less
