Welcome

I'm New

We are an ordinary group of people, of all ages and backgrounds, who worship an extraordinary person – Jesus Christ. We hope you enjoy browsing our website – but if you can come and drop in to our office midweek, or visit us on a Sunday service, that would be even better! We’d love to meet you.

What happens at Church?

At all our church services we sing songs which contain great truths about the living God, we hear the Bible read and taught, and someone will say prayers.

Afterwards we enjoy morning tea or supper together – it is always a wonderful time to get to know people and encourage each other in following Jesus.

What should I wear?

God has no interest in what someone wears – and neither do we.  Please come as you are or as you feel most comfortable.

Does it cost money?

No.  The reason Christianity is such good news is that forgiveness is free because God has paid for it.  We are therefore really pleased to have people come to church free of charge, and do not wish guests to contribute to our costs.

Can anyone come along?

The message about Jesus is the best news in the world, and is for all people.  Therefore we are delighted to welcome anyone and everyone - whatever your background, race, lifestyle, belief (or lack of belief), sexual identity or personality, please feel warmly welcome to come and visit us.

Who is Jesus?

Jesus is a powerful friend indeed - someone the Bible speaks of as the King of all creation. Jesus has conquered sin, which separates us from God - and has also conquered death. Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose from death in victory. Today, he is alive and well!

Jesus loves us more than we could even love ourselves. He forgives our sins, he prays for us when he hears our prayers, and he cares about what is happening in our lives.

Ignore the hype - the best way to get to know Jesus is to understand what the Bible says about him, and that includes what he said about himself.

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored is a way of discovering the best news ever heard, and gives you space and time to think about the big questions of life. Over 7 sessions in Mark's Gospel, find out more about the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus Christ.

Connect Course

Connect Course is a great way to find out more about St John’s and meet some of our staff. It’s a four week course (one evening a week), looking at who we are, what we believe, what we’re doing, and how you might be involved. If you’re new to St John’s this is a great place to start!
