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.
Remembering His Royal Highness Prince Philip – St John’s will be open on Saturday 10th April between 10am – 12noon, and 2-4pm, and also Sunday 11th April 2-4pm, for those who wish to mourn the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip. A book of condolence will be available for those who wish to write a message. You can also submit a message to the online book of condolence on the Church of England website. Our service this Sunday at 10am will include special prayers, giving thanks for Prince Philip’s life. God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip, for his love of our country, and for his devotion to duty. We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
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 email@example.com 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.
