Sadly Covid-19 restrictions mean we are not able to offer our usual pattern of Services. As of 6 January 2021 all Public Worship within the Parish (apart from Funerals) is suspended. You are invited to join our virtual service of the Parish Eucharist or partake of other Service Resoureces for Worship at Home here.
The Parish Eucharist will be made available each week from 8.00am each Sunday.
When Public Worship resumes (with restrictions), our usual Pattern of Services , is:
Services at St John’s
8.00am BCP Holy Communion
This quiet morning Service follows the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and lasts around half an hour.
10.00am Parish Eucharist
A Service of Holy Communion, according to Common Worship, with hymns and a sermon. At present recorded music is replacing life music due to restrictions. The service lasts around an hour.
There is no Junior Church either at the moment nor are we able to offer refreshements after the service.
