Getting Involved

If you're new to St John's there are some great ways to get involved and meet people.

Welcome Suppers

We occasionally run welcome suppers at the Vicarage for new people to come along and enjoy an informal evening with a meal, a chance to chat to other new folk and hear a bit about what's going on at St John's. Along with Clive and Mary you will get the opportunity to meet and chat to a representative from each congregation, Andy Williams representing the children's & youth work, and a rep from the life group admin team. If you are new to St John's and haven't yet had an invite please do contact the Church Office.

Serving Opportunities

Joining a volunteer team within the church is a great way to get to know people and make friends. The Serving Opportunities page lists all the latest opportunities to serve at St John's.


Attending an Alpha course is a great opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith and get to know some members of St John's. Find out when the next course is running on the Alpha page.
