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.

Ephesians on Purpose
Our current sermon series is on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
This letter is a personal favourite of mine. Why? Because I think that it’s one of the most encouraging, instructive and inspiring books in the Bible.
The passages which describe God’s great plan of salvation reach to the highest places in heaven and address God’s plan for the cosmos and not just our tiny planet.
In contrast, the sections which suggest how we can live godly lives here on earth address our every-day concerns.
Where Christians have a human-centred doctrine of salvation, this letter has correction, where there are divisions amongst Christians, this letter suggests unity, and where there is confusion with regard to day to day holy living, this letter seeks to bring clarity and purpose.
As we study it carefully my prayer is that we’ll discover some great inspiration from God’s word.
The series is called “Ephesians on Purpose” because if we regularly hear the message of Ephesians over the next few weeks then, with the help of God, we will find out some of God’s purpose for ourselves, our world, and beyond.
