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

A prayer for the Brexit vote, by the Dean of Southwark Cathedral:

God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength. (1 Corinthians 1.25)

God of wisdom and strength,
who challenge us in our foolishness,
and support us in our weakness;
give to those who lead us
a desire for that which is best,
a commitment to that which is honourable,
a love for that which is true
and a passion to serve the common good.
In Jesus’ name.
