SHCT Ride & Stride 2019: the annual Suffolk Historic Churches Trust Ride & Stride event takes place on Saturday 14 September 2019 from 9.00 until 17.00, so it may be time to brush the dust of your bikes, oil up the gears and dig out your cycling helmets! 

Cycle or walk to as many churches as you like or sponsor a participant - over 650 places of worship in the county are open on the day. Sponsor forms are available from Alan Weller via the Church Office or, if this sounds too energetic, would you be able to spend an hour or so welcoming the riders and walkers as they visit St John's.  For more information please speak to Alan Weller.

The Suffolk Historic Churches Trust makes grants to churches and chapels of all denominations towards repairs, improvements and restoration and more than £5 million has been raised since its inception.

 To Japan for Jesus - 6 October 2019

Japan is a beautiful, technologically-advanced country with a long history and fascinating culture. However, it’s less well known that out of a population of 126 million only 0.3 percent are evangelical Christians. This makes the Japanese people the second largest unreached people group in the world.

Come and meet David & Manuela Pawson who, along with their daughter Esther, are preparing themselves for long-term work in Japan. Find out how they were called, why they are going, and why Japan needs Jesus.

Healing Prayer Service

God still heals people today and that healing prayer is commanded by God's Word (see James 5:16. If you would like to receive healing prayer then do please come along to the Healing Prayer Service at The Avenue, Evangelical Church - you are most welcome. You do not need to know anything about the Bible or about Jesus. We would simply love to pray for you. Although we feel it is better to be prayed for when you are present, if you feel unable to attend, you can send your prayer request to us at 42 Warwick Avenue, IP12 1 JX and we will make sure that we pray for you.

If you are a regular at another church, do please feel free to come and receive prayer; it is open to all.
