Welcome to our family
St John’s is a place to belong – whether you’re from the local area around West Byfleet, or further afield. We’re a friendly and caring place, whatever your age or stage of faith. For those already familiar with church, we’re part of the Church of England, with a liberal catholic ethos – we support the ordination of women, and we hope you’ll enjoy worshipping with us, wherever you’re from, or whatever your status, gender or sexuality.
If you’re new to the Christian faith, we’ll help you find out more; if you have questions, we’ll help you find answers; if your faith is wavering, perhaps we can help you through difficult times? Whoever you are, whatever your situation, you’re welcome here!
St John’s is usually open during the day, providing a space to pray, sit, think or be still. When the building is closed, you are welcome to spend time in the church grounds, including using the picnic tables for lunch when the weather permits.
Covid update – St John’s re-opened for attended services on Palm Sunday (28th March), and will continue to be open for Sunday services each week at 10am – please do join us, you will be very welcome. For those unable to attend, these services are recorded and posted to YouTube (usually within 24 hours). The church is also now open for a service of Holy Communion (said) at 10am every Wednesday, and for private prayer each Thursday between 10am – 12pm. As with all of our recent ‘live’ services during the last year, various procedures are in place to ensure the building remains Covid-secure, and you remain safe.
Can we pray for you?
There are occasions when each one of us feels a need for the support of prayer – and during difficult and taxing times, there may be any number of additional reasons why any of us might want someone to pray with or for us. There’s no need to explain why you need the prayer (unless you choose) – just ask.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone either 01932 343128 (Hazel Craig) or 01932 851830 (Geoff Jones) and they will make sure that your request is made known to the Ministry Team. Be assured that you, or those you are seeking prayer for, will be prayed for. The same goes for other needs you may have – please get in touch if you need help and we will see what can be done.
