Freedom In Christ Course starts Wednesday 16th January 2019 

Freedom in Christ has been run on a number of occasions at St John’s over the last five years.  This discipleship course is highly recommended to both new believers and established Christians. The course aims to help you grasp the truth of who you are in Christ, sort out personal and spiritual issues and become more fruitful in your discipleship.  You are always welcome to repeat the Freedom in Christ course if you have already done it before.   

The evening will start at 7.30pm with refreshments, followed by a short DVD and then small informal discussion groups.  The evening will finish at 9.30pm.

Strange Emails from the Church Office? 

We would like to remind all eNews readers to be vigilant when opening emails, as we are aware that a few church members have received spam emails that appear to have the church office email address as the sender. We have investigated this and these emails do not originate from the churches systems (in fact one we checked had come from a computer in Brazil!). Therefore, if you receive a strange or unexpected email from the church office please do not open any links or click any buttons that appear in the email.
