Listening, Learning, Transforming


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". We welcome enquiries about christenings, weddings and other celebrations. The clergy are also available should you have 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.


The popular annual Plant Sale will be held after the service on Sunday 13 May from 11.15 to 12.15. There will again be a wide selection of annuals, perennials, shrubs, herbs, vegetable seedlings and house plants.


Please publicise the sale among your friends and bring them along. Also please provide boxes and bags to take your purchases home.


If you are splitting clumps of perennials, or have planted too many seeds do bring any surplus plants and leave them in the church courtyard during the previous week, or before the service (labelled if possible).


Any questions? Please contact Roger Lilley on 570884 or Katie Knapton on 212089.

CMS Mission Partners - lunch 13th May

 Our CMS Link Mission Partners, Kylie and Bhim Bahadur with their son Joshua, will join us at our All-Age Worship on Sunday 13 May. After chatting over coffee they will talk in church about their work in north-east India. Do please listen to their important story. Following that the PCC and the Mission Committee are hosting a bring-and-share lunch for them in the Wilkinson Room. If others would like to join us please let Katie Knapton know on 212089. You will be very welcome.

Year of Prayer

On 5th November we launched our Year of Prayer. The purpose is to help each other to pray, to learn new ways of praying, and to deepen our faith, common life, witness & service of others. Come & visit the display area at St John's, or attend 'Coffee & Compline'. There will be leaflets about prayer, and various initiatives: an Advent School of Prayer and Sermon Series, a Lent Prayer Course, Quiet Days and Prayer48.

These links include our local uniformed organisations, a range of local schools and educational institutions, the Queen Edith's Ward and Community Forum, the 'Three Saints Partnership' of St Andrew Cherry Hinton, St James Wulfstan Way and St John's, the South Cambridge Deanery and the Cambridge Churches Homelessness project.
