Welcome to St John's Church
We are a relaxed and lively Anglican church with a desire to reflect the kind of church that is described in the New Testament: loving God and serving all. Jesus has shown us such extraordinary love that we want to celebrate His life among us in different ways:
Passover Meal - This Thursday at 20:00
If you have ever wondered how Jesus would have celebrated the last supper - you will get a good insight on Thursday night for we know that the passover meal has changed little since the time of King David. You will also get an insight as to how our 'Holy Communion’ stems from this ancient feast and it will help you understand what we’re doing when we celebrate that Sunday by Sunday.
The church will be set out as a restaurant - there will be free wine and unleavened bread - and salt water, parsley, and charoseth (apple,honey, nuts mix) but other than that you will need eat before you come! We will sing some Jewish songs and you will learn some Hebrew :)
Ian is training for the Ministry, and is studying part time at the South East Institute of Theological Education (SEITE). He will be joining us at St John's from time to time from late February to the end of the summer as a necessary part of his training.
Ian teaches Languages at Christ’s Hospital and is Assistant Chaplain there too.
Popular WW1 exhibition has been made into an e-book!
The “Broadbridge Heath, the Great War and Remembrance” exhibition recalled the stories of 31 village residents who died in the Great War, contained personal memories and memorabilia from many local people and project work from Shelley School year 6 pupils.
Broadbridge Heath resident Peter Ward took photographs of the Remembrance event and has produced an excellent e-book.
