The evening service takes a break over the holidays but is back on 8th September.

SJC Communities

Each community serves a local area or a group of people, whilst studying the Bible in discipleship groups and meeting socially to build friendships.

Take a look at our SJC Communities page for more details.

New Vicar!

Please click here to read the announcement that our Churchwardens have made regarding the vacancy and the appointment of our new vicar, Rev Paul Dever.

New Preaching Series

On Sundays from April until the summer, we are going to be using the Lectionary.  This is the official list of readings for the Church of England which many churches follow closely (including our MMP churches). We have chosen a passage for each week which has been taken from the Lectionary and most (but not all) of these are from John and 2 Corinthians.

Head to our Services page to find out more.


Check out our Services page for more details on what is happening soon.
