St John's Vision
When St John's church first opened in 1913, sheep and cows from neighbouring farms sometimes found their way to church. Now the Parish of St John's Hurst Green, while still semi-rural, is home to nearly 7,500 people and we live to:
Welcome everyone, deepen faith, inspire action and share God's friendship and love.
Our current focus is:
For children and young people to be actively involved in the life of the church with dedicated activities to nurture them as they grow into disciples of Christ.
To welcome people, with dedicated practical and spiritual resources for those new to Church, or just to St John’s.
To foster a deeper faith for all including nurture of personal vocation, with courses and groups run for to explore the Christian faith together through bible study, discussion and prayer.
To enjoy a greater diversity of worship, including some more modern worship, variation in liturgy and informal, special and guest services
To tackle loneliness and isolation in and around Hurst Green, building friendship and support within and beyond the church.
But most importantly we are here today, now, in the present moment for any who want to spend time in the presence of God and connect with other like-minded people. St John's is your church. We welcome you. Do come and find out more.
