What Is Christianity?

The message at the heart of Christianity is pretty simple. Find out what it's all about on this two-minute video. Turn your speakers on! At the bottom of the page there are details on how to ask any questions you may have.

 

Christianity is about Jesus. But who is Jesus?

Jesus once asked his followers this question:

"Who do you say I am?"

  • A prophet with a new teaching?
  • A healer to the sick?
  • A saviour to a lost world?


WIC.1

Jesus claimed each of these, but most importantly, he claimed to be God in the flesh.

At the dawn of time he ignited human history when he spoke. He breathed life into the lungs of the first man and woman - and every inch of creation itself.

WIC2

But we rebelled. We turned against our King and followed our own ways, even though it would cost us our life. Our sin poisoned his perfect creation, giving way to sickness, injustice, and death.

WIC3

Sin separated us from one another, and from God.

Why did Jesus come?

But rather than cast off humanity, God sent his Son Jesus to enter into the world he Created - the one broken by our sin. He breathed our air, became human like us.

WIC4

He lived a perfect life - the one God intended we live - and called us to repent of our sin and follow him in faith. 

Some believed his word and recognised him as King. Others denied him. They crowned him with thorns and murdered him. They rejected him, and so have we.

But God had a plan. Jesus willingly gave himself up to die on a cross to save us from God's judgment and the death we deserve.

WIC5

On that cross, he exchanged our rebellion for his obedience. Our brokenness for his perfection.

The Son of God died so we could live.

And on the third day, he rose to life again, defeating death forever.

And now, he sits on the throne of heaven, offering life through the Holy Spirit to all those who repent and trust in him.

WIC6

What does it mean for us?

Jesus is the King of Kings.

You can either crown him or crucify him. There is no middle ground.

No one will ever ask you a more important question than the one Jesus asked:

Who do you say I am?

Planning your Visit

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.

Our Service

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.

Getting Connected


Growth Groups

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.
