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
When I arrived, I shared with you that I am convinced that God is going to do wonderful things in and through the church family of St John’s. But it’s evident to me now that God has already been and still is at work here. So, as we look to the future with anticipation and excitement about what God might do it seems right to begin with celebration of what He has done and is already doing in our church and parish, and the lives of the people we connect with.
On Sunday 3rd March, we are celebrating St John’s Day. We will have the two services as normal but will start our second service at the slightly later time of 11am so that we can have a breakfast together with some activities that will help us to start to think about the future. I would urge the first service people to be prepared to stay a little longer than usual, and the second service people to join us at 10am. Later that day, there will also be an evening service of celebration and praise at 7pm.
If you would like to help with the catering please speak to one of the churchwardens or myself.
We will fully enter our vision process with a first Vision Day on Saturday June 22nd. It will involve worship, presentation, discussion, activities, food, and fun and probably with sessions in the morning until early afternoon. There will be an optional walk in the afternoon and a BBQ or meal with worship and discussion in the evening.
I am also anticipating a follow up day on Saturday 14th September, which will also afford another opportunity for anyone who couldn’t make the June day.
All events will involve all ages and I hope every member of St John’s will be involved in the process, whichever of our congregations they attend (Sundays 9am & 10:45, Tuesday Worship, Messy Church, etc) so that we make sure we can all have our say. So, please put these important dates in your diary now. As the 3rd March approaches, it would be very helpful for the catering if you could let me know if you can’t be there.
I’m really looking forward to all the wonderful things that God will do in and through our church as we live out the gospel in faith and reach to a future where He already is waiting for us.
God bless, Nick
