A message from Lawrence, our Website Editor
Welcome to everybody, particularly to anybody who has "landed" on our site for the first time. If you would like to make contact with our church community then please click here to email our priest, Bishop Rob.
Our heartfelt thanks must continue to go out to Bishop Rob & Janine for their deep, insightful and moving video services through the weeks of "lock-down." This time we have voices from the Choir of St Martins-in-the-Fields" bringing us, "I the Lord of sea and sky" recorded individually in their homes. Thanks also to Revd Pat for her Morning Prayer service this week. All these have helped our St John's Christian Community, and I am sure many others, to navigate through the first eight weeks of the Covid-19 prevention measures.
So, thank you Bishop Rob, thank you Janine, and thank you Pat. Thank you all!
Hard though it is, it certainly behoves us all to continue do our best to comply with the ever evolving advice and instructions that our National Government issues. If we all do as we are asked then we hope and pray that the country will eventually be able to return to some kind of normality.
The changing effects of Coronavirus Updates and Instructions on the ongoing daily life of our Church will be posted here and, where appropriate, on the relevant pages. In the meantime we pray for the safety of the whole community in which we are called to serve.
13:30 on 17/03/2020 - The Church of England has now suspended all public worship. Our regular services will therefore be suspended until further notice.
