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.

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.
