A very warm welcome to St John's.
We are a warm and welcoming Church of England parish church in the South of Cambridge, and this is the website for both our Church and our Community Centre.
Our theme for 2020 is
BEING, BELIEVING, BELONGING
This web site is designed to give you a feel for life at St John's. Please do explore and if you are looking for a church, please come along and say "Hello". We always welcome enquiries about baptisms, weddings and other celebrations and the clergy are available for advice, counsel, spiritual guidance, or to answer questions.
For links to how we are continuing to be Church @ Home during this pandemic, follow this link.
We hope that you can find everything you need on our website, but if there's anything you can't find, or if you would like to sign up for our regular St John's e-news, then do email James.
Services for this Sunday are:
9:30am All Age Worship, led by Lucy Holden
11am Service of the Word, led by Canon Kate Aylmer (Revd Chris Campbell preaching)
6pm Evensong, led by Revd Chris Campbell
Our 11am Service of the Word, will be recorded and will appear on this website mid-afternoon. For more reources and for the service sheet, please click here.
If you've been worshiping with us online, we'd love to here from you! Here's a short message from Sian, our Pioneer ALM, to say hello!
You can contact Sian via email.
Following the latest government announcement, we are pleased that from Sunday 12th July, St John's will be open for gathered worship. Services will take place at the following time:
For those who are unable (or choose not) to attend gathered worship, please continue to look at our Church at Home pages for information about online worship.
Our ministers continue to be available for pastoral support - please do find their details here.
As we reflect on all our experiences of the last four months, and on this time of transition, James has written a Pastoral Letter to the congregation, which you can download here:
There will be a number of changes to how our services take place and physical distancing and hygiene measures will be in operation, as well as limits to the number of people who can attend each service.
Full details of services and measures in place are available here. Please do read the guidance included on that page before attending gathered worship for the first time.

Roger has just created for the Museum of Cambridge website Capturing Cambridge a number of self guided tours that can be taken in the real or virtual worlds. Two of the tours are in our parish, the others are in different pats of the city. You can walk the routes and access the information with your smartphone, or explore at home with your computer, perhaps with Google Streetview turned on as well!
Please send suggestions and comments on the tours to the email address on the website.
