Inspired by Hartford's Picnic in the Park, we thought it would be good to have a few informal picnics over the summer. The first one was last week but, if you're free on 14th August, do join us as we meet at Grange Park for food, chat and fun. Bring your own lunch, rug/chair and favourite outdoor game if you have one!
If the weather is poor, we'll use the Wardle Hall in the Church Centre instead. We'll meet after the 10am morning service from about 12pm. If you can't make this one – there'll be another opportunity on 4th September! Jon.
St John's 10am Sunday Service - 7th August 2022
Please join us on Sunday 7th August, for our morning service, at 10am, in St John's Church. This week, there will be a Holiday Kids session, for primary school children, but everyone still comes to church for the first 15 minutes.
Over the next few weeks, we'll be looking at some of the Psalms and the Bible passage for Sunday is Psalm 45. You can also read this in Traditional Chinese. This week, our preacher is Kip' Chelashaw, one of our mission partners, who is leading a new church plant in Nairobi.
There is a small area of seating in church where masks must be worn and seating is distanced. Of course, you are welcome to wear a mask anywhere in the building. If you have COVID, please don't come to church.
We would love to welcome you in the building but, if you can't make it, the service will be available online via our livestream on our YouTube channel. The livestream will start around 9.55am. Please say hello using YouTube chat.
