It is my great pleasure to welcome you to St John’s. We are a friendly, welcoming church. We share the gospel of Jesus Christ in ways that inspire us to follow Him in our lives and share what we discover to make our communities places of love, joy, kindness and justice. We believe there is a place for all members of our community, whether you are single, have a young family, are a younger person, if your children have ‘flown the nest’, or you are of mature years.

Everyone is a valued member of our church family. Our different styles of worship cater for all ages. We really enjoy coming together and have a chat and a cup of tea at the end of our morning services.



Care and support


Our pastoral team is here to give you support in a range of circumstances.  We are willing to come along to visit and listen.  Where necessary we can suggest further places where you may find help, too.  If appropriate we are willing to pray with you, believing that God listens and helps us in our lives.
