A page outlining the history of our two churches has now been added to the website – see History.

Thanks to Tony Dunhill for this contribution.

Memorial Service

Sunday 7 November is the annual memorial Service at St Mary’s Church, 3.00 pm.

The service gives people an opportunity to remember departed loved ones. Fill in a request card on arrival to have a name read out in the service.

Prayer Ministry at St John’s and St Mary’s

Members of the Prayer team have been available to pray with people at St John’s every Sunday and at the healing service at St Mary’s.

The team will now also be available after communion, during coffee, at St Mary’s every week. Prayer will take place in the Choir stalls. Should you like prayer for yourself or others please make yourself known to a member of the team at either church. In St John’s prayer is at the back of the church behind the screens. Members of the Team can be spotted wearing Prayer Ministry team badges.
