St John's Pop Up Breakfast - Saturday 19th October 

We would like to invite you to a Pop Up Breakfast at St John's on Saturday 19th October between 8am - 11am.   The money raised will help one of our young members of St John's, Lydia Bridgeman, who has just started the 'Intentional Discipleship' course for one year at Hope Church.  She is sharing a house and needs to raise money to help fund the course and the mission trip.  This is a wonderful opportunity for Lydia - please come along to support her.

We hope you've enjoyed hearing from the different areas of Church Life (Growing Younger; Reaching Out, Caring and Journeying) over the last few weeks.  

Everything we do here at St John’s is underpinned through prayer and we believe that everyone has a passion and gift to bring to the life of St John’s. Together we bring God’s love to each other by encouraging, serving and building friendships, enabling us to grow as individuals and a community.  If you are already involved in an area of church life we would still love you to complete a card showing which area you're involved in (you can add "coffee team", and tick the journeying or caring team as you feel fits what you do best), as this is something we can celebrate and be thankful for.  Pick a card up from one of the chairs or at the back and pop your completed card in one of the baskets which will be at the back of the church on Sundays.   

If you would like to complete a digital card, please click on the image below - you can then email this to the office:
