We are a local parish church at the heart of Copthorne with a vision to grow in love for God and each other.

We are part of the Diocese of Chichester and the Church of England. Our congregations are each different in style but all welcome people to join in worship, practical bible teaching, prayer and generosity.

We believe that life is best lived in relationship with God. So if you'd like to explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus, we invite you to join the next Alpha Course.

If you're new to St John’s, we'd love to get to know you; why not speak to some of the welcome team during the service who will gladly help you with any questions you may have. Alternatively you can connect with us via our contact page, social media or our office during their office hours.

We look forward to getting to know you!

Our church continues to be alive and active.

Our church continues to be alive and active however our buildings remain closed for public worship until further notice. We will have a daily, physical prayerful presence in our church building with one person from our clergy or warden team praying every day.


You can join us in your homes in prayer when you’re able to (perhaps by lighting a candle). To join in with our daily prayer times go to:
