Preaching Timetable: January to July 2017

The Reformation

The Reformation was a time of considerable upheaval as the Bible was put back into the hands of the people. We don't revisit it to delight in the past for it's own sake, but to see what happened and how we must be continually reforming ourselves according to God's Word. Find out Why it is the Reformation still matters today and what it means for our lives.

Services

At St John's we have three Sunday services. The 9am service is a traditional Church of England communion service. The 11am service is a contemporary service of worship. During the month this will include an 'All age service' and a 'Holy communion', (see key below). The 6.30pm service draws on a mix of traditional and informal styles of worship.
