Sundays are when we get together to worship and encounter God together. This page is about our the Sunday morning services at St. John’s. We also have a monthly service at Burton Green and a service which is just an hour of worship nearly every two weeks at St. John’s (see section below).
St. John’s Base:
At our St. John’s Sunday morning service you’ll be joining about 200 others for worship, teaching and vision and opportunities for prayer. We welcome newcomers and visitors and are relaxed and informal in style (dress, casual). We have children and young people’s groups covering ages up to 18.
Service Starts: 10.30am
Service ends: 12.15pm
The focus of the service is slightly different each week.
Here’s what is happening during a usual month. For changes/ different services see our Facebook page or Calendar.
|1st Sunday||Multi-Generational||Fast-paced, with depth and discipleship focused, shorter and for everyone together.|

St. John’s & Park Fellowship:
This service is a new start from the end of two great congregations: Park Fellowship and St John’s which have always been known together as “Westwood”. This is something new for both of us. We came completely together in January 2016 with a vision of unity, in heart, spirit , identity and vision, engaging with Holy Spirit on a deeper level, personally re-evaluating missionary call and becoming a truly multi-generational church focused on discipleship and mission.

Nearly every two weeks we will have an informal gathering on Sunday evenings which is just a non-stop hour of sung worship devoted to God. This will start at 7pm and finish at 8pm.
We will advertise the night during the morning services when they are on but we will also try to have accurate info on our church calendar.
