Open Church

The Church building is currently closed, owing to the COVID-19 lockdown.  

For more information about staying connected with God and with the Church during this time, please click here.

You can also sign up for our weekly email by clicking this link.

We look forward to seeing you back at Open Church as soon as the restrictions are lifted.





Are you spiritual but not necessarily religious?  Like churches but not a fan of church?  Do you attend church regularly, but wish for some time just to be quiet and pray?  Or do you just like coffee and free food?!

Whoever you are, whatever you believe, St John’s is your church.  Open Church is an opportunity for you to use the space however you want.  You can drop in any time between 7:00 and 9:00 pm on the first Wednesday of every month, and do whatever you want to do.  Nobody will preach at you, ask for your money or try and sign you up for the flower rota.

At 7:30 pm, there is an opportunity to join others for a very short and informal service (usually a Bible reading and a creative prayer activity) – you’re welcome to join in or not.

At 7:45 pm, we sit down and share a meal together.  Again, you’re welcome to eat or not eat, or take a bit of food and run!

Please do come along – it would be lovely to see you.
