More Information

We are a church that cares for people – its members, those within our community and also those on the other side of the world who we don’t know.
We are a church that values all people, whoever they are and whatever their history. All can find a welcome here.

We are a church that believes in transformation – of individuals, of our community and of the world at large. We want to join in with God in doing his transforming work.
We are a church that is open to the leading of the Holy Spirit and so we will not be afraid to try new and different things. We’ll take risks and if they don’t work then we will learn from them.

We are a church that puts others before ourselves and so we sacrifice our needs and wants for those of other people.
We are a church that worships a generous God and so want to be generous too – with our time and our money to be a blessing to others.

We are a church that wants to grow. We are not satisfied with remaining as we are but want to change, grow and see God’s kingdom spreading throughout our community.
We are a church that grows disciples who are committed to God and growing in Him. We will study together, pray together and break bread together.

We are a church that puts Jesus at the centre of our life – and so we are committed to prayer and studying God’s word as we discern where God is leading us.
We are a church that is not afraid to admit when we get things wrong. We will apologise, seek forgiveness and try again.

We are church that loves – first and foremost God, but also each other, our community and the world. We will do all that we can to build up and encourage, rather than tear down and destroy.
We are a church that is committed to sharing the good news of Jesus with others, through deed and also in word.

Christianity is about relationship and community

The best way to find out about faith and prayer, to raise questions or get help, is to meet some Christians.
St John’s is just one of the Christian churches in this area; we seek to work alongside other Christian churches and denominations.

Learn more about God (as he is in Jesus) by reading the Bible 
eg the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament?

We want to be a church that most importantly listens to God. As a result the Leadership Team have been meeting every 4-6 weeks since the Away Day to formulate a vision of where we believe God wants to take the church.

Father… love, caring for each person as God''s loved child.

Son… he revealed himself as the historical person of Jesus Christ, whose life, death and resurrection holds the key to knowing God, and to making sense of life, before and after death.

…and Holy Spirit… alive, loving and active today. Sustaining life, giving spiritual gifts to the church and bearing his spiritual fruit in the world - changed lives and a transformed society.

Jesus Is the Life

The Bible tells us that Jesus came to take us who were dead in our sins and bring us back to life (Eph. 2:5). He accomplishes this for those who believe in Him through His own death and resurrection. By dying and rising again to life, Jesus pays for the sins of the faithful and removes the consequence of sin, which is death. This is the life-giving message that Christians possess and must declare to a dying world. The great news we must announce is that whoever believes in Jesus will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

We believe that, through Christ, God can be known as our heavenly Father, and that through the Holy Spirit we may trust, love and worship him.
We believe that through the Bible, God teaches us what to believe about him, how to live for him.
We believe that the world''s greatest need is to hear and respond to this good news.
