We are a friendly, welcoming bible based evangelical church situated to the east of London just inside the M25 in the Havering Deanery. Whether you are looking to join our church family on a regular basis, or are enquiring about becoming part of the church for a special occasion, such as a wedding, baptism or a social event, these pages should give you all that you need to know.

Each week, children, youth and adults of all ages gather for worship on a Sunday. The service starts at 10.30am. The children are with us at the beginning and then go out to their classes. Tea and coffee are served straight afterwards.

Newcomers are always greeted with a warm welcome and we hope that you will find a spiritual home amongst us.

If you want to know what's going on at St John's please click the "Events Calendar" link or the "Activities" link to find out a bit more.

We have a vision to serve the community as a parish church and have formed good relations with neighbouring schools, local authorities and with other churches and organisations in the area.

If we can be of any assistance to you in any way, please get in touch as we will be glad to hear from you.
