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 current sermon series is on Prayer. The idea is to look at different prayers and approaches to prayer.
I wonder, what’s your attitude to prayer?
Do you have a daily quiet time and an on-going conversation with God?
Or is it – to be honest – a bit more hit-and-miss than you’d like? Prayer should be the central part of our relationship with God.
We put our requests to God but much more importantly we grow, deepen, our relationship with God.
Joseph Scriven, who was no stranger to difficulties in life, wrote the famous hymn, “What a friend we have in Jesus”.
Some might think the tune and words a bit old-fashioned, but the message is as relevant as ever: “O what needless pain we bear! All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.”
We have a God who is always more willing to listen than we are to ask – if only we as a church and as individuals took him at his word!
