New To The Church

Joining the Church - The First Visit

Walking through the doors of a new church for the very first time can be a big step. At St John’s we welcome everyone new, whatever journey they may be on. We hope the information here will be useful, along with our video tour which will help familiarise you with the building.

Joining The Church Family

Maybe you haven’t been to church for a while and are interested in attending again, or you’ve never been to church before. Plucking up the courage to join in one of the services is a good way to start. You don’t need to be an expert in theology to go to church. At St John’s, church-goers are friendly and happy to extend a warm welcome to new potential members and visitors. Attending church is supposed to be a learning experience and open to all. Therefore, try to keep an open mind and open heart.

At St John’s, fellowship with others is just as important a part of worship as attending the services on a Sunday. There are various ways you can join in and get to know members of the church community. If you would be interested in joining or would like to know more, please click the contact button above for details of how to get in touch.
