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.

Are you ready for Christmas yet?
I apologise for the title which will cause many to have a panic-attack as we realise what still needs to be done before the big day.
Actually, it’s much more than the day itself as we have services, celebrations, meals and gatherings. It may be a lot of fun but sometimes, especially if it all falls on one person, it can be just too hectic.
Rather than bust a gut trying to make the Christmas season as perfect as it appears in the media adverts, maybe we should be a bit more relaxed about things.
So what if Christmas dinner appears with tinned meat because we forgot the turkey. So what if we all buy Aunty May the same present.
If the effort we put in to try and make it perfect is instead diverted into making room for the Christ-child, then, and only then, will we truly be ready for Christmas. And so we’ll be able to sing with joy to the world, as our hearts prepare room for Him
