COVID-19 Update

In line with guidance from the Government and the Church of England, we are not holding Sunday services or mid-week meetings at St John’s at the moment.

However, recognising the importance of meeting together, we intend to do our best to meet together via videoconferencing. We want to make continued participation – even in this less personal way – a priority, just as we would if we were meeting live. We need one another, and the nourishing food of the Word of God.

How we are meeting

Sundays

We’re meeting online as church on Sunday mornings and we hope everyone will be able to join us wherever you are! At 10am (or a little before) you will need to click on this link https://zoom.us/j/152030147
We’re hoping to have all the components of a normal Sunday morning – songs, all age section, prayers, and teaching from God’s Word.

Homegroups

We are encouraging our homegroups to continue to meet, at what is a stressful time for many via video conferencing technology (e.g. a free Zoom account (limited to 40 mins), Skype or Facetime), with the usual format of Bible study and prayer. Your group leader will be in contact with you.

Midweek groups

Most of our Short Courses will continue on-line. If you have signed up for one of those the course leader will be in contact with you about the details.

Our wider community

We have distributed postcards to every home in our parish, offering help to those who are self isolating or are affected in any other way. If you are able to join the team of volunteers please get in touch.

Where is God in a Coronavirus World?

How belief in a loving and sovereign God helps us to make sense of and cope with the coronavirus outbreak.

We are living through a unique, era-defining period. Many of our old certainties have gone, whatever our view of the world and whatever our beliefs. The coronavirus pandemic and its effects are perplexing and unsettling for all of us. How do we begin to think it through and cope with it?

In this short yet profound book, Oxford mathematics professor John Lennox examines the coronavirus in light of various belief systems and shows how the Christian worldview not only helps us to make sense of it, but also offers us a sure and certain hope to cling to.

Pick up a free copy of this just-published book from the porch of the church building (open 24/7).
