Latest News

There is plenty going on at St John's and we want to keep you up to date with all our news! Please see the articles below to view our recent news. If you would like to receive our weekly email including news and details of our services and events, then please sign-up here. Please also see our social media pages for regular updates.


The weather is possibly wet tomorrow morning and so we do not want to risk musicians and their technical equipment outside. So we have decided to CANCEL the outdoor service. The 9am Said Eucharist indoor will go ahead as planned.


This Sunday's Services

- 9am (note - not 9.30am) Said Eucharist, in church (no music).  Please note we will need the drive clear of cars by 10am and please don't park along the church wall near the main door so the musicians can set up for the outdoor service
- 10.30am Outdoor Worship (weather permitting).  A relaxed, informal gathering for all ages (0-100 year olds!).  This week we'll think about superheroes and how they teach us about Jesus' return to heaven but continued activity in our lives.    Please do bring a chair or picnic rug and you may like to bring some colouring pencils too.  Please use the overflow car park only or walk if you can or park on nearby roads.

At both services please distance appropriately and use hand sanitiser where possible.  For the indoor service masks are required and a swift departure from the building at the end although outside you can talk within the rule of 6, respecting the wishes of those who may prefer not to talk.  For the outdoor service please arrive and depart wearing masks.

We will also continue with our weekly 9.30am Service on YouTube, please see the link to both the service and service sheet below:

Christian Aid Week - 10th - 16th May 

Christian Aid is a well established charity which helps the poorest in our world.  Each year they have a focussed fundraising week and local volunteers deliver donation envelopes to many households in Hurst Green.  This year volunteers will not be door-knocking to collect these but instead you can give your donation into a local collection point listed on the envelope.  Christian Aid is also running an emergency appeal to help the Coronovirus response in India - a country where the poorest are really suffering from lack of medical supplies at this time.  There are also envelopes available here in church today.  Please return them to a collection point or bring them back next Sunday.  Thank you 

Annual Parochial Church Meeting - Sunday 23rd May 

This year's Annual Parochial Church Meeting will be held in St John's Church at 10.30am on Sunday 23 May.  There will be just one service in the Church on this day, at 9.30am.

The agenda is here and last year's minutes.  A report on the various areas of church life will follow separately.  This will be presented with photographs as last year and will contain the annual accounts for the year ending December 2020, approved by the PCC.   You can also see the accounts here

Nomination forms to stand for the PCC or Deanery Synod have been sent to Church members via email.  Full instructions are on the forms which should be returned to me at as soon as possible, but by Friday 21 May 2021 at the latest. 

If you propose to attend the meeting and need hard copies of any of the documents, please print them out to bring with you if possible.
