Welcome to the web site of St John the Evangelist, an Anglican church, located on Hills Road to the south of the city of Cambridge. If you visit us, you find a congregation of people who aim to serve God in our lives and our worship, and a community that aims to make everyone feel at home.

St John's is a church with a real parish feel whose members are drawn from all age ranges and from a variety of traditions. Those of us who worship regularly at St John's appreciate this rich diversity. Our range of activities reflects this, from the Toddler group through to the Companions group, and including Children's Church: Living Waters, Youth Group, choir, and home and study groups.

This web site is designed to give you a feel for life at St John's. Please explore! And if you are looking for a church, please come along and say "Hello".

If you have news, reflections or reminiscences about life in our parish please send them to Roger to consider adding to out web site.

In July the choir were invited to sing at a wedding in the parish of Melbourn. Then, on the last Thursday of term the trebles got the opportunity to see how the organ works, including going inside the area where all the pipes are. They got to feel the air going through the pipes and see the relationship between playing the notes and the sound they made. All the trebles really enjoyed the experience and Susanna and Ella both wrote about it. To read their descriptions follow this link.

Help needed to build our local history website

The Museum of Cambridge's Capturing Cambridge web site has just expanded with lots of information about Queen Edith's. The website has an interactive map and the viewer can click on any dot to show information about the history of a road and the people in it. As well as a focus on roads, there are links to information on interesting buildings including churches in the area. Articles about local archeology can also be read.

Roger Lilley is the local editor of the site on behalf of the Queen Edith's Community Forum. At the moment the information is mainly in the form of links to already existing on-line articles and web sites. However, it is hoped that many people will now come forward offering photos, reminiscences and stories that will enrich the site. All suggestions and contributions can be forward to Roger on queenedithshistory@gmail.com.

The Search Begins
