We are sorry to say that following the national lock-down regulations St John’s Church is closed for communal worship.
See below for all that is still happening and details of how we can still gather together (safely)!
The church remains open for individual private prayer on Sunday and Wednesday.
The Rector’s letter…
Revd Jonathan Hillman writes…
I, like you, have many questions and very few answers as the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to escalate. It is very hard not to feel fearful of all that may be. Many have expressed deep anxiety as life has been forced to change; self-isolation driving us further into loneliness, the possibility that we may have already said a final farewell to loved ones, the economy on the brink of a meltdown, empty shelves replacing abundance of choice and now it feels as if Church has shut up shop and gone home…
We are sorry to say that
St John’s is currently closed for public worship
We warmly invite you to join us
as we gather together online.
Details of how we gather will be published below and on our Facebook page.
Please do check both regularly.

We will be gathering in several ways over the coming weeks. Details of how this will be will be published here.
This week we will be doing Church on Zoom at 10.00am. If you wish to join us please contact us, or better still send us a message on our FaceBook page, and we will send you the link.
Alternatively you may wish to tune in to the Eucharist at Guildford Cathedral at 9.45am.
If you wish for something a bit different why not try
Online Church instead – details below.
You are warmly invited to join us for this week’s Online Church. Online Church consists of a YouTube playlist of worship songs, readings, thought (sermon for those more used to church language!) and prayers for you to use and access throughout the week. If you wish to play it all the way through simply click on the large video and it will play through (a bit like being back in the building!).
All our previous playlists are available on our YouTube Channel.
However you use these videos we pray that you will be aware of God’s loving presence with you.
If you are not seeing the latest playlist please refresh your browser as this usually sorts the issue.
We join together every Sunday at 11.00am for coffee – Zoom style!
If you would like to join us for this time of coming together please contact us via email or better still send us a message on our FaceBook page.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
We are sorry to say that weddings can not presently take place within St John’s following the government’s guidelines.
