Outside SW Corner of Church

As a precaution in order to protect  our church members and the local community, the PCC along with the Rural Dean have resolved to suspend public worship at St John's for the next few weeks whilst the pandemic is raging. The situation will be reviewed towards the end of February.  This page will be kept up to date as our plans are able to be modified.

In the meantime we plan to record weekly services and make them available from this page and the Video Library page of this website.  They will also be accessible on our YouTube Channel and from the St John's facebook page.

Sunday 17th January 2021 - Epiphany 2 - With contributions from Rev Evan McWilliams, Julie and Lawrence we have created St John's Morning Worship for the 2nd Sunday of Epiphany.
