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

THE END OF THE CHURCH YEAR
All Saint’s Day on November 1st celebrates people in whose lives the Church as a whole has seen the grace of God powerfully at work. It is an opportunity to give thanks for that grace, and for the wonderful ends to which it shapes a human life; it is a time to be encouraged by the example of the saints and to recall that sanctity may grow in the ordinary circumstances, as well as the extraordinary crises, of life.
Remembrance Sunday on November 12th goes on to explore the theme of memory, both corporate and individual, as we confront issues of war and peace, loss and gifting, memory and forgetting – with a focus on two World Wars.
The annual cycle of the Church’s year now ends with Christ the King on Sunday November 26th .
The year that began with the Advent hope of the coming, Messiah ends with the proclamation of his universal sovereignty. The ascension of Christ has revealed him to be Lord of earth and heaven and returns us to the theme of Advent and the cycle begins again.
Let us celebrate the achievements of the past and the potential of the coming years.
Rev’d Royston Smith
