A Warm Welcome to St John's
The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.
Where and When
We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:30am. When you arrive you can be assured of a warm welcome.
We serve tea, coffee and biscuits at the end of the service. It is a great way to meet people. All refreshments are free.
Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcomers know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a toilet accessible to wheelchair users in the hall.
The service begins at 10.30am with a warm welcome from one of our team members along with anything we have to give thanks for. Following this we have a song. During our services we try to have a balance of traditional, modern and new worship. One of our leaders will then give a bible based talk that we can apply to our everyday life. After that, we sing again before a time of prayer which will be led by the leader. We then finish with a final worship song. The whole service lasts around 45 minutes.
What about my children?
Children stay with their parent or grown-up, we have an area at the back of church with toys. There are baby changing facilities in the hall We love having children in our services, they are valued members of our church.
While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our Growth Groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. It's a fantastic way to learn together from God's word. Check out Growth Groups and see if there’s one that you could join.
