A very warm welcome to St John’s, Walton!
We’re a lively, friendly church seeking to “Know Jesus and make Him known” through being a “Community for the Community.” It would be great to welcome you in person at one of our Sunday services or Tuesday service and lunch.
Whether you’re looking for information on room bookings (we have a fantastic range of rooms that we love to see used by the community), or what we have going on during the week, our weekly Bulletin, our children and young peoples’ work, etc, you should find it all here!
If you can’t find what you want on this website please let us know by contacting the church office – details are at the bottom of this webpage after our current Bulletin letter.
Our regular Sunday morning services....
9.00 am Holy Communion
10.45 am Family Celebration
The Easter season is a time when Christians rejoice in the knowledge that their risen Lord has overcome death and in so doing brought forgiveness to the world, but the celebration of the reality of Easter only comes after Jesus faced the tensions and trials of Holy Week.
Changes in life and the loss of security or loved ones can be traumatic but it can also be a time to discover that all is not lost. The message of Easter is that, even after death, there is resurrection. Jesus had to face terrible suffering and the cross before he entered into a new life. He had to lose his own life and be resurrected on the third day in order to bring redemption to all of humanity.
The Easter message resonates down the centuries and can bring a special meaning to all who are feeling at their most vulnerable in difficult times.
The truth of the resurrection for Christians is a message of hope and it is one that we are called to share with our family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues wherever they are.
I wish you a happy and joyful Easter.
Revd Royston Smith
