We at St. John’s Church want to welcome you to our church and to do our best to make you feel at home among us.

Whether or not you are a Christian, you are welcome to attend the regular Sunday worship services and also other church activities during the week.

However, there are some meetings and events which are more suited to internationals students and scholars. Please read about these below…

Fellowship Groups (Wednesdays & Thursdays)

St John’s mid-week home groups are called C groups. Some have a mix of British and internationals. These provide an opportunity for Christians to meet together in a home for fellowship, bible study and prayer.

The groups normally meet from 8pm – 10pm on Wednesday or Thursday evenings. Transport can often be provided. If you would like to join a mid-week small group please contact the church office or Debby Bridge.

Bible Study Group (Tuesdays)

This is a group especially for international students who have had little or no experience of the Christian faith but who are interested to find out more about the teaching of the Bible, about the person of Jesus and about the Christian faith. We meet on Tuesday evenings from 8pm to 10 pm in the home of one of the church members who lives near the church. For more details please contact Ron McCulloch or the church office
