Fr Jerry's Silver Jubilee

On the 4th October Fr Jerry celebrates the 25th anniversary of his ordination as a priest. Mthr Anne-Marie celebrates her 19th anniversay on the same date.

We are celebrating with a sung mass at 7.30pm followed by refreshments at the back of church.

We are also delighted to be welcoming the Ven. Moira Astin, Archdeacon of Reigate, as our preacher.

All welcome.

The Queen's Platinum Jubliee

Queen’s fun hats made by local people will be on display throughout June.

The choir will sing a special anthem composed for the Royal School of Church Music with words and music by Thomas Hewitt-Jones based on the Queen’s speeches. It is called “In our service”. The organist John Woodhouse will play music for royalty at the church fair on June 25th and there will be items from local schools. Why not come along and “have a go” on the magnificent organ?

 Bell-ringers all over the country will ring a quarter-peel in June.

Covid-19 / Plan B - Updated guidelines

Following the introduction of Plan B by the Government, the Church of England has updated its guidlines on public worship.

The main change is that the wearing of facemasks is now, once more, mandatory. When attending services at St John's you will therefore need to wear a face covering. This incudes while singing. The usual medical exemptions apply, of course.

The full guidance can be read here: Opening and Managing Church Buildings
