The Church of St John the Evangelist                              & The St John's Centre

This is the website of both the church and the community centre. For more information about the St John's Centre please follow the link St John's Centre where you will find more information about the facilities and the booking process.


We are 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 a variety of traditions. Those of us who worship  at St John's appreciate this rich diversity. Our range of activities reflects this, from the Toddler group to Companions, Children's Church, Youth Group, choir, 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". We welcome enquiries about christenings, weddings and other celebrations. The clergy are available for advice, counsel or spiritual direction, or to answer any questions.


If you have news, reflections or reminiscences about life in our parish please send them to Roger to consider adding to out web site. An increasing amount of information about our parish, Queen Edith's ward, and Cambridge city in general can now be found on the Capturing Cambridge website.


Choir Sing Carols To Raise Money For East Anglian Children's Hospice

Over £500 was raised by the organisers. Thankfully, much better weather than last year.

Community Lunch Club launched

St John's held the first of its community lunches on 11th December its new community centre. This was the first of a series of lunches planned to take place throughout 2020 and beyond. Parishioners and visitors were warmly welcomed and were treated to a choice of home-made pea and ham or vegetable soups, with mature cheddar cheese and a roll, followed by a delicious mince pie with cream, and tea and coffee and mint chocolates to conclude. As if that wasn't enough, with the Christmas season almost upon us, the welcoming and serving teams donned festive head gear for the occasion we all had a Christmas singalong! 


This was a really fun event, and we intend to build upon its success in the New Year. Spread the word - Community Lunches are here! Next date 29th January. With thanks to all who participated. See you all next time, we hope!
