*Public Worship is again suspended at St John's, due to the National Lockdown For more details, and for a range of materials to support your worship at home, including our weekly online service, please see the Church at Home section of our website*
Following the Prime Minister's announcement last night, St John's has made the difficult decision to suspend all public worship services until further notice, subject to the approval of the PCC.
We will be reverting to our main Sunday worship being a pre-recorded Church at Home service, followed by zoom coffee and conversation; along with a number of Zoom Services (which will include Morning Prayer Mon-Thurs, Compline on Wed and Evening Prayer with Sermon on Sundays). We will also continue to provide written materials and telephone support, for those not able to access the internet. Our Home Groups and Youth Groups will also carry on meeting online.
Full details of all our plans, as well as a sincere message of support at this time, have been sent out on our e-news, which can be downloaded on our home page.
At this time of intense pressure for the NHS, are prayers are with all hospital staff, GP practices and community healthcare workers. We also pray for all our local schools and colleges, both for the staff and students, and for parents who are now adjusting to another period of home-schooling. We pray too for all who are feeling lonely, vulnerable or who are living with long-term health conditions.
