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.


New Curate at St John's

We are delighted to announce that on Sunday 1st July Chris Campbell was ordained deacon by the Bishop, Stephen Conway, at Ely Cathedral. Chris is now Curate at St John's. Her first Sunday with us was on Sunday 8th July. After the All Age service, there was a Parish Lunch to welcome Chris & her family. Our prayers continue with Chris as she begins her new ministry amongst us.

Enlarging Our Tent

Our EOT project to increase accessibility at St John's and to renew our kitchen area has completed its technical design stage and is about to go out to tender. We still expect the project to be largely completed this year. We have been greatly encouraged by the interest shown by potential grant awarding bodies. By the end of July we hope to have all the information we require to make a final decision. If you would like more information on the project please see Joseph Saunders or Peter Tavner.


A very big thank you to all who have donated to the project. If you would like to make a further donation please contact Roger Lilley.

Community Concert - Saturday 16th June

Our summer concert with the Great Bowden Recital Trust was a great success. A big thank you to those who supported this event. We raised over 600 pounds, which is being shared between the Morley Memorial School musical tuition fund, and 'Enlarging our Tent'.


We have just updated the list of policies available to be read on the website.
