How to give online to those in need at Christmas…

St John’s has a tradition of giving away freewill and cash offerings at all our Christmas Services from the Carol Services on 18th December until Sunday 1st January.

You also have the option of giving online throughout Advent until Sunday 1st January!

In 2016, the money will be divided between the work of the following ministries:
