Home Groups

At St. John's Church we understand that it can be hard to get to know people and find the time to talk about our faith with others.  For this reason there are a number of Home Groups that meet to pray, study the Bible and get to know one another in a comfy and trusting environment.  There are plenty of small groups to choose from.

  • Wednesday   10.30am       Wendy Sparkes (Ladies only)
  • Thursday        8.00pm        Nigel and Ann Pearce
  • Thursday        8.00pm        Peter and Yvonne Glass
  • Thursday        8:00pm        Eddie Marquez @ St John's Church

If you are interested in joining one of our groups or starting up a new Home Group, please complete the form below and someone will be in contact with you soon.

“St John’s is an incredibly warm and welcoming community and we feel blessed to have found it. We attend services regularly with our toddler children, who are made to feel most welcome. This really is a family church. All are greeted with open arms. It is a wonderful place to worship God.”
