Welcome to St John's we are a friendly Anglican Church in the heart of South Hornchurch, east of London in the borough of Havering.

We are centered around the word of God - we celebrate diversity and look for opportunities to connect with people whatever their background and culture in our local community, so together we can learn to discover the people God has called us to be. 

Our Sunday service is at 10.30am, we are relaxed and informal with contemporary music, a talk and often input from other members of the church. Afterwards do stay and make yourself known over fresh coffee. 

In the Evening at 6.30pm we have another opportunity to get together and talk about a variety of different subjects to do with Christianity, this takes the form of DVD or testimony and often includes praying together, we call this session, Wild Goose the Celtic word for Holy Spirit. 

There are many other events and gatherings during the week which you can find on "Events Calendar" and the "Activities" link.
