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.

Word In Song Conference - 27th-28th April 2018


What does the Bible tell us about our worship and singing? And how do we best lead our churches in singing the praise of Jesus? Keswick Ministries, in partnership with Emu Music, will be running the Word in Song Conference in Keswick.

Two days of refreshment, teaching and practical training for church musicians and pastors. Each day will include hearing from the Bible about God’s plan for singing within the church; sessions to personally encourage you in this unique (and not uncomplicated!) ministry; plus practical workshops for song leaders, instrumentalists, song writers and pastors.

Sessions will be led by the team from Emu Music; including Philip Percival (author, songwriter, trainer, Music Director: St Ebbe’s Oxford), Alanna Glover (song leader, song writer, trainer), Liv Chapman (singer, songwriter and trainer).
