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 weddings, Christenings and other celebrations.


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.

Our church knitting group

The beautiful and colourful baby blankets made by the church knitting group. Vibrant colours and clever patterns make these blankets absolutely striking. They are sent all around the world to orphanages in developing countries. The knitting group also made a very charming raffle box for the fete this year with inside a most delightful white dog and a very cute hedgehog!

History of our church officers

Richard Lyon has just finished a trawl through the archives trying to put together lists of those who have held office at St John's. Please have a look and if you can add any information - names, dates or interesting anecdotal information about the persons listed, especially from the early days of the church, please forward the information to Roger.
