Young Adults

Welcome, we’re so glad you’re here!

St John’s has a diverse, growing and supportive community of young adults (18 – 30’s) who love Jesus and love sharing life together. Whether Birmingham is your place of study or work, your home, or you’ve just moved to the area, we would love to meet you.

As a church, we believe that Young Adults are not separate but an integral, committed part of our wide and diverse church family. We encourage those in this age range to join small groups, lead, serve and get involved wherever possible. As well as gathering together on a Sunday, we run regular events throughout the year so there are always new opportunities to get to know new people. From adventurous pursuits, to evenings in the city and quiet reflective spaces, these activities are specifically aimed at 18-30s, loving and welcoming people from all faiths and none. We are also passionate about mentoring, one-to-one discipleship, meeting for prayer and growing community.

Post 18.30 Drinks
You are so welcome at any of our Sunday gatherings – please introduce yourself next time you come along! A group of our young adults normally head to Arco Lounge (on Harborne High Street) for a drink after the 18.30 gathering, why not tag along? Find us in the Main Hall after the 18.30 service.
