Sunday 22nd March 2020


In accordance with advice from the diocese, St John’s has now suspended all church services until further notice to reduce the risk of infection from the coronavirus. Could all members of the congregation please make sure the churchwardens have your contact details so that theycan keep everyone up to date on the latest guidance.
