Pumpkin Heroes - Wednesday 31st October, 5pm-7pm

An alternative to Halloween for all ages on Wednesday 31st October 5:00-7:00pm in St John’s Church. 

We will be having fun together with games, songs, prayers, food and an interactive story with Patch the Pumpkin.  A chance to think about how we can share the light of Jesus in our community.   Come and join us, and why not invite a friend to come with you?  Children under 11 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. 

For more information or to volunteer to help with this event, please contact Clare Johnston in the Church Office.

A message from Lyn Spall

 My family and I would like to thank all our St John’s Family for their many cards, prayers and good wishes following Don’s passing. We have been overwhelmed by the love shown by so many. We also thank you for your generosity in supporting Parkinson’s UK. The Wing Walk and other donations have raised over £5,000. A wonderful legacy for my wonderful husband. Thank you all.

Ministering in the Power of the Holy Spirit Training Day

All welcome.  This is a repeat of the event Julie and Sophie led in June this year and Clive would encourage as many members of St John’s (and elsewhere) to come along.  If you attended in June and would like a refresher then you are most welcome as are any interested parties from other churches.  This is to enable us all to clearly see how this simple, respectful and liberating model of prayer ministry can be incorporated into the life of the church making it easy for people to receive prayer and easy for people to offer it - without the need for a formal team, with meeting and rotas, etc. This way,  those coming forward for prayer will know what to expect and anyone who has attended the training can choose to pick up a Prayer Ministry badge on the way into church whenever they are free and able to offer prayer ministry in the service.  

Every member ministry is something St John’s has long supported and this model of prayer sits well with that concept.  If you have any questions or would like to book a place please contact the Church Office and leave your name and a email address/contact number.
