We pray at this time for those who make decisions about a new Rector, to find the right person.
We hope that this person will be understanding, kind, enthusiastic,
and inspiring for the local community, our team of five churches and our school. Amen

St John’s Morning Prayer Every Tuesday morning starting on Tuesday 12th July St John’s will be having a Morning Prayer Service at 9.15am. Everyone welcome.

Urgent help is needed! If our beautiful Church is to remain open during the day we desperately need volunteers to lock up at the end of the day around 4.30pm. If you can volunteer for just one evening it would be greatly appreciated. Unfortunately no one has volunteered yet and it looks like our church like many others will not be left unlocked during the day, which is a great shame as we get many visitors. Please call Alison at the Parish Office if you are able to volunteer 01246 412328.

Coffee after the Sunday services – 11.45am by Zoom  We invite you to “virtual” after service refreshments, by clicking on the link in the notice sheet at 11.45 am or afterwards. Please bring you own coffee
