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".


If you have news, reflections or reminiscences about life in our parish please send them to Roger to consider adding to out web site.

WORLD WAR II in our parish


I have started researching the names on our Roll Honour connected with the the Second World War. Although there were far fewer in the armed forces killed in this conflict than in WWI, information about those named is proving difficult to discover, even their connection with our parish in the first place.

 

The progress I have made so far can be found on this page - World War II in our parish.

 

As with WWI I am also hoping to compile a list of all those in the parish who participated either through the armed or voluntary services. If you know of names I can add to the list please forward them to me together with anything else known about their family and address. Much of this information is now appearing on the Capturing Cambridge website as well as much other historical information about the people of this parish.
