Coronavirus (COVID-19)

PROTECTING EACH OTHER TO LIMIT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19


ST JOHN'S CHURCH IS OPEN TO VISITORS FOR PERSONAL PRAYER AND PUBLIC WORSHIP TIMES

We will also continue to  live streaming our services and running courses via our social media channels. 

Prayer

As mentioned St John's church building and church yard will be open from every day for personal prayer and reflection. Come and light a candle, engage with prayer spaces and pray for our nation.

If you would like to book a private prayer slot in church go to our WHAT'S ON page. In order to minimise the risk of infection, small groups and other meetings will be done online.  We are still church at this time, despite not being in the building! We will have to think inventively to continue our pastoral care for the church community, remaining together each in our different homes and as one church. 

When visiting the church for prayer or worship we recommend everyone to wear face coverings as is government guidance for visiting enclosed public spaces.

What You Can Do

If you’re able to be visible in your neighbourhood, offering support if you are able to.

If you feel isolated or are struggling at this time and would like to reach out for support, prayer or someone to talk to, we’d love to help. If you would like to speak to someone, just give us a call.
