10am – this service varies throughout the month as follows:

  • on the first and third Sunday - Holy Communion using Common Worship with a mixture of modern and traditional music, plus crèche, Sunday School and Pathfinders for the chidren 
  • on the second Sunday - a more informal Family Service with a mixture of modern and traditional music for approximately 45 minutes

All but the Celebration Service are led by the music group, with a variety of piano- and occasionally organ-based music used, together with guitar, cello, flute and clarinet accompaniment as appropriate. The Celebration Service is led by a contemporary worship team, lending a more informal atmosphere to this service. There are also a wide variety of special services throughout the year. Please see the calendar for details of up and coming special services.


6pm - every 2nd and 4th Sunday there is a prayer service lasting around 45 minutes.


St John's welcomes everyone to come to any of our Services. Hymns and songs of worship are displayed on our special screen and a small numver are printed each week and are available in large print. St John's has good access for those with disabilities and has a hearing loop for those hard of hearing. A number of the congregation take part in reading the lesson and leading intercessions and we aim to make all of our worship services welcoming to all.
