An introduction to the life of St John's Church, Flixton
Our worship is liturgical, with different orders of service, taken from the Church of England’s ‘Common Worship’, for different times of the year. We incorporate a degree of informality and flexibility within these, too.
Our music is a mix of old and new. An informal singing group shares worship songs during the administration of Holy Communion, and our hymns and songs are accompanied by organ, piano and/or guitars, as suits their style.
* First Sunday of the month at 10.30am is usually our All-Age Worship, with most children in church for the whole service (which lasts around one hour).
Our Harvest Festival display of gifts donated by congregation members.
* Most other Sunday services at 10.30am are family-friendly celebrations of Holy Communion, with 'JC Squad' (Sunday School) for children for part of the time in the church hall. We begin and end all together as a family, and our worship is over around 11.45am, often followed by a chat over tea, coffee and biscuits.
* An Evening Service of Holy Communion is held on Sundays at 6.30pm on the first Sunday of the month when there is All-Age Worship in the morning.
The church home groups (see http://www.stjohnsflixton.org.uk/organisations/home-groups.php) meet, usually fortnightly. Anyone can join any of them – you don’t have to wait to be asked. These are informal evenings together for study, discussion and prayer, where we can support each other and build our faith in a small “cell” style setting.
There are also meetings from time to time for men (see http://www.stjohnsflixton.org.uk/organisations/mens-meetings.php) often in venues away from the church itself.
