Prayer at SJC

Over the past 30 years there have been many changes at St John’s, and these have been undergirded by a life of prayer. There are many stories of God answering prayer, inspiring and providing for the church; these stories have built the faith of the next generation. St John’s has a vision to be a house of prayer, a real powerhouse for God’s work in the church and community.

If you have any questions about any of the prayer oppourtunites available at St. John's please do contact us on prayer@stjohnscolchester.org.uk
