A prayer for all those affected by coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

A welcoming Christian community for all,
Inspired by the love of God,
Growing together in faith,
Sharing the good news of Jesus by serving others through words and action.
St John's has an open evangelical tradition with worship that varies between traditional and modern styles. We strive to be obedient to the Holy Spirit and for Him to work within us in our worship and life together and in the local community.
