Please enjoy the gift of sunflower seeds you should have found in your letter box from St John’s. We hope you will enjoy growing these bold and hopeful flowers. In the Bible, the “death” of a seed that then springs to new life is a picture of Christ’s death and resurrection. It also illustrates the “sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life” we can have for ourselves when we trust in him.

We had three services this Easter. All are available on catch-up, either on our YouTube channel, or via the sermon recordings page of this website.

  • Good Friday - All Age Service
    a family-friendly service, with many of our young people taking part
  • Good Friday - Reflexions at the Cross
    a reflective service led by our vicar, Rev Mike Smith
  • Easter Sunday - Family Communion
    led by Rev Mike Smith, with Rev Dr James Robson preaching. James is Ministry Director for Keswick Ministries and a member of St John's

For Easter Sunday, there were printable booklets for 3-6 year olds and 7-10 year olds. There was also a handout for teenagers.

Starting from the footpath at the corner of the Church Centre car park on School Lane, follow the trail of Easter eggs through the churchyard. The trail will be open everyday from just before Palm Sunday (Sunday 28th March) until just after the end of the school Easter holidays.

There is no charge for taking part in the trail and you are welcome to visit it at any time, with the exception of Wednesday 31st March when our Tots & Tinies group are visiting. Please scroll down to book for the Tots visit.

The trail is outside in the fresh air and has been designed to be COVID-19 safe. Please ensure that you adhere to the latest guidance when joining the trail and stay socially distanced from other households or bubbles. You might want younger children to wear wellies.  They might also get a bit grubby, so please bring your own wipes to use!

If you aren't able to join us physically in our churchyard, you can still take part in the trail from your own garden.
