Our church services
the monthly pattern
Services at St John’s reflect a range of contemporary and traditional styles of worship, with music mostly provided by our wonderful organ and choir, and at other times more informally by the church band.

Children are welcome at all times, either to stay with their families or use the children’s corner inside the church. Our monthly family services are shorter and sometimes involve action songs and instruments, so that the children can join in with the band!
You will be most welcome to join with us, on your own or with family and friends.
At every 9.30 am service on Sundays, prayer partners offer the opportunity to pray with you privately in St Andrews Chapel after communion, either to share prayer concerns either for yourself, or someone you know. All prayers are of course treated in the strictest confidence.
A special service for prayer for healing takes place in alternate months in St Andrew’s Chapel. Please see the calendar for dates and times.
