Re-ordering & Decorating
The church is in need of some essential work, as it has not been updated for 30 years. Next year, the church will undergo a re-ordering when we will look to improve the facilities that St. John's can offer, therefore, all support is welcome. Please contact us for more information.
Thank you to all who donate towards the flowers for our Special Services. In order to maintain this, and for other services e.g. Remembrance, Service of Hope, Christmas etc... we need to raise £500 per year. Should you wish to donate to the 'Flower Fund', please Contact Us.
