At St John's...

We proclaim Jesus Christ as the one who rules everything and the saviour of all who turn to him for salvation.

We look carefully at the Bible in each church service and in various smaller groups. We do this because we recognise that the Bible is God’s word in written form.

Like all people, we are full of faults. But we believe God’s promise that he will forgive all those who turn to Jesus Christ, and we aim to be faithful to him in the way that we live.

In April 2013 we launched our Ministry Strategy which outlines our 3 priorities of...

  • Bringing in: bringing people to hear about Jesus
  • Building up: building people up as followers of Jesus
  • Bearing fruit: equipping people to serve Jesus

Si Walker explains our 3 aims in this short video:

Everything we do is focused on growing together as followers of Jesus.
