If attending in person is difficult for you we have lots of great technology to help. We stream most services from St John’s on our Live Church page. Also if you are unsure or would just like to chat, don’t hesitate to get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
At Café church, just as we all enjoy a relaxing meal with friends or meeting up for coffee, we sit around tables as we participate in the service. After coffee and cake, there is usually a visual presentation of some aspect of the Christian faith, followed by discussion. Meanwhile, the children are involved in various activities and present what they have made to the grown ups towards the end of the service. Singing is lively and various people offer prayers or say something about themselves. It’s a great way of getting to know people and learning more about Christianity.
Messy Church is just like it sounds! It is a very informal service and is for all ages. You will find lively singing, activity stations scattered throughout the church for the children to explore, and food and drink provided throughout. There will usually be a children’s address, and a moment for us all to join in the Eucharist together. It’s relaxed and joyful.
