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

In the meantime phone calls will be diverted to a mobile number, and our Administrator will be able to access emails at home. ... See MoreSee Less

Brexit: Depart in Peace

A prayer for Brexit day by the Revd Barbara Glasson, President of the Methodist Conference

However we feel about today
We mark this Brexit day
As people who grieve or celebrate together
One people
Loved equally, freely and unconditionally
By the one wise all-seeing God
Either way let us hold this day gently
Giving ourselves permission to leave
Without elation or despair
Determined to love our neighbour
Support the weak and welcome the stranger
Lord of all life
Let your servants depart in peace
And live according to your Holy Law
