There’s always plenty going on at SJC during the week, on site in the community.
Kids & Youth
We want the time that young people spend with us to be the best part of their week!
All children are welcome to join us, to have fun and learn more about God.
Alongside our Sunday activities, we have regular activities such as Messy Church, Youth events and Refresh Cafe.
We have links with the local primary schools, where St. John’s is involved with assemblies, services and productions.
Messy Church is church with a difference! For all ages, but especially for those with children.
We start with arts and crafts – a chance for everyone to have fun and be creative, with an area for the little ones. Then we have a short celebration service with singing and a story and last – but definitely not least – we serve up food to enjoy together.
Refresh is a café-style group for parents and carers of 0-2’s, meeting Tuesday mornings in term time from 10.00am.
Relax and enjoy a freshly brewed coffee or selection of teas and tasty treats while your little ones explore and play with a variety of age-appropriate floor toys.
Recharge as you listen to a short reflection to give you food for thought for the week ahead. A great place to meet and make friends – and of course to be “refreshed”!
Meeting every Thursday, we reach out to and serve the local, predominantly over 60’s in our community. It’s a great way to meet up with friends and make new ones!
Each week provides something different including a lunch club, drop in coffee morning, plus some special activities – a film, dance or quiz.
All this, alongside traditional Holy Communion Service and time for bible study, prayer and mutual support.
