Thanks so much to everyone who contributed.
If you can't wait you can download a pdf copy here
You might want both paper and pdf versions. Why?
- pdf - full colour everywhere, available now, email to friends, but no directory
- printed - full colour only on the outside and inside covers, directory included, the feel of the paper
One of things that people say they love about St John's is our diversity - particularly in our worship style, and the many different ways we each think about God, the church, the Bible and so much more.
This morning that wonderful diversity found unity in an All-Together vision service, when a congregation of all ages came together to think about how God is calling St John's to flourish over the next few years.
Thank you to so many of you for joining in last Sunday and celebrating the past and present, and sharing your hopes, dreams, prayers and ideas for the future.
The next few years look set to be exciting! Come and be part of the journey, as we grow together in love for God, each other and the world.

Our local Food Bank at the New Zion Christian Fellowship church would appreciate receiving donations of food and other things from us now and all year round. It would be wonderful if you could support them by bringing various things in on Sunday mornings, and placing them in the big plastic box which will be placed in the porch. The sort of things the Food Bank would like to receive are:
- All food with good sell by dates (tins of fruit and veg, jams, packets of cereal, coffee, tea, long life milk and so on)
- Toiletries such as shampoo and conditioner and toilet rolls
- Cleaning products (kitchen and bathroom cleaners etc)
We are asked not to donate clothes.Nigel will arrange to take our offerings to the New Zion church every Wednesday morning.
These are now kept up to date on 'A Church Near You' - specifically here:

Please sign up for a spot in the Cleaning Rota
Still slots to fill!
"The Cleaning Rota" did not run during Covid and instead the Churchwardens Jenny and Nigel cleaned and disinfected per Covid best practice, but now it's time to ask for your help with getting the rota started again.
Jenny will be contacting people who have previously taken a turn with cleaning. More volunteers are needed to help us. All the materials you'll need are provided. All that we need is your time!
Let's spread this load between us all!! Please contact Jenny if you would like to take a turn with cleaning.
You can choose a date that suits you!
