Since March all our public services of worship
were suspended due to the coronavirus.
The Government has announced that we can reopen with restrictions.
Our services are listed below and you are welcome to attend.
Sunday 25th October
10.30 am Morning Prayer
Services for November to be announced
N.B. These services will not be following our usual pattern. e.g. congregational singing will not be allowed. Mask must be worn and social distancing will be observed.
Please follow instructions on entering the building.
During the lockdown, and since, we have recorded services on-line. These were prepared during the week and made available to view on Sundays on YouTube.
The venue for these services have been St Peter's Church, Aldborough Hatch, with whom we are in discussions to become a Benefice.
Our first recorded on-line service at St John's was for our Patronal Festival Service
on 4th October 2020.
Our second service, recorded here, was on 18th October 2020: St Luke's Day.
To view these services, and others, please go to Videos.
Before the pandemic we were meeting every Sunday at 10.30 am.
We do not know when our former services will be resumed. These were:
1st & 3rd Sundays: Holy Communion.
2nd Sunday: All-age Worship. This is an informal service and we have a small music group of instrumentalists to lead the worship.
4th Sunday: Morning Prayer. This is a structured form of worship using a liturgy.
We have a small choir to lead the services on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Sundays. We have a team organists to play for these services.
Our hymn books are Songs of Fellowship and Hymns Old and New, and we use others worship songs from Spring Harvest.
For our Communion Services we use the Common Worship service booklet, provided by the Church of England. We often use power point presentations at our All-age Services.
We have additional services midweek on special occasions e.g. Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.
There are pews in our Worship Area that can seat around 150 people.
The wood and glass partition can be opened to accommodate more people if necessary. Spaces have been provided for wheelchair users. We have an amplification sound system.
During our services, please remember to turn off mobile phones or put them onto silent mode.
