St John’s is made up of community minded people who seek ‘to know the Father and to show His love’. We believe that it is through God’s word that he reveals himself clearly to us, and that it is through Jesus that we can be forgiven. We seek to be a valuable part of the local community and to reach others with the good news about Jesus.

Parish Policies and Practice

Christianity Explained is a short course, held over 4 weeks, to introduce people to Jesus. We would love the opportunity to talk about Jesus with you.

Weddings – St John’s provides a classical setting for marriage services. Please contact the lay leaders for details about preparation and services.

Baptisms – The promises we make to God in baptism shape our lives. A number of informal meetings are held to prepare and consider these promises prior to the Baptism.

Funerals – Both Thanksgiving and Christian services are offered and available.
