What happens at St John's

Is there a charge for coming to Church?

Some newcomers have asked us if there is a charge for coming to Church. The answer is no.

The Church is funded entirely by voluntary donations by the congregation, and any money raising that we organise, such as the annual May Fair. Regular Church goers acknowledge that everything comes from God and offer back to God their time, talents and money. Commitment to giving comes as part of the commitment to Christ, as we get to know him.

There will be a collection during the service and an opportunity to give. Many of the regular Churchgoers donate by means of Standing Order, so do not be surprised if few people appear to put money in the plate.

The greatest gift we can give back to Christ is ourselves - everything else follows from that.
